The City of Ranson celebrated its 100th birthday in 2010. Situated in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, just an hour's drive west of the nation's Capital and forty minutes from Washington-Dulles International Airport, Ranson maintains small-town charm, with metropolitan-like access. This combination provides a great place to visit, raise a family and conduct business. While visiting Ranson and Jefferson County, we invite you to retrace the route of pre-Revolutionary pioneers, hike the Appalachian trail, enjoy the scenic wonder of the Blue Ridge mountains and Shenandoah River and march in the footsteps of Civil War veterans from Harpers Ferry National Park to the national battlefields of Antietam and Gettysburg. We hope that you will visit and consider locating your family or business in Ranson.
