Start Something Story:
Create Buckhannon

For this "Start Something" story, we're featuring what happens when you "start something" in your community that encourages other people to start something! 

Create Buckhannon was lunched a few years ago after empowered and energized leaders attended some of the first Create WV Conferences. Armed with new economy and creative community-building insights, and trained through programs from the WV Community Development Hub, Create Buckhannon has made an indelible impact on the current and future prosperity and quality of life in Upshur County. 

Stephen Foster, Executive Director,Upshur County Development Corp.: “Attending Create WV has been pivotal in inspiring us to build Create Buckhannon. The networking and creative learning opportunities have been phenomenal." 

Create Buckhannon continues to provide funds and volunteers to create quality of life enhancements to Buckhannon and Upshur County. The organization meets every Thursday at noon on the second floor of C.J. Maggies in downtown Buckhannon - please join us for lunch and conversation.
