The City of Winfield is located along U.S. Route 817 (formerly Route 35) along the Kanawha River and is the county seat of Putnam County. Winfield is five miles north of the I-64 Teays Valley exit; halfway between the state capitol, Charleston, and West Virginia's second largest city, Huntington.

Winfield became a town on February 21, 1868, and is named after General Winfield Scott, a national hero and leader of the War of 1812, and one-time Whig Party presidential candidate (1852). Upon completion of the 2010 Census, Winfield became a city with a population of 2,301 residents.

We are a thriving community that has experienced rapid growth in the past few years, but has not lost its small town charm or rich history. From the by-gone days of the ferry crossing the Kanawha River, to our newly renovated Winfield bridge, we embrace the future, while still treasuring our past.

There have been many new businesses and housing additions springing up throughout town, with more potential for growth in the future. Although there have been many changes over the years, Winfield remains a family-oriented community where hospitality and friendly faces abound. Our crime rate is one of the lowest in the country and our school system is one of the best in the state.

We invite you to visit Winfield, both on this website and in person. The small city with the rich history by the river that is looking towards the future with great expectations!
