West Virginia Area Codes Overview

West Virginia, nestled in the heart of the Appalachian region, primarily encompasses two area codes: 304 and 681. Area code 304 covers the majority of the state, including cities such as Charleston, Huntington, and Morgantown. Known for its rich cultural heritage and outdoor attractions, this area code encapsulates the diverse landscapes and communities of West Virginia. In 2009, area code 681 was introduced as an overlay to address the increasing demand for phone numbers while maintaining the unique identity of the region. Both area codes now coexist, serving the telecommunications needs of residents, businesses, and institutions across the Mountain State, contributing to the connectivity of this picturesque and historically significant part of the United States.
