Make yourselves at home Veterans! The City of Bluefield welcomes you! Conveniently located right off Exit 1 of I-77 in Mercer County, West Virginia, a state that does not tax Military Retirement and has the highest population per capita of veterans in the Nation, is thankful for the service of our veterans who have served proudly in our Armed Forces, as well as widows, widowers, and dependents.

Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, Bluefield is rich with history, committed to being a city that welcomes our service members and their families to live, work, and play, learn and maintain their physical and mental health. An Outdoorsman’s paradise with incredible affordable historic housing, low cost of living, phenomenal schools, two 4-year colleges and one of the lowest crime rates in the state, Bluefield boasts accessibility to world class healthcare services (three VA hospitals in the region) and the city’s position in close proximity to several military bases (Ft. Bragg, NC, Ft. Belvoir, VA, Ft. Jackson, SC) are some of the attractive features the area has to offer which make Bluefield a wonderful city to retire or begin a second career.

“Our community embraces our veterans and welcomes them with honor, respect and recognition.”
