Weston is the county seat of Lewis County, West Virginia. With a population of 4,300 residents, this rural community was formerly known for its glass production and natural gas distrubution. The town was settled on land owned by Daniel Stringer and Lewis Maxwell, and it became incorporated on January 14, 1846.

Located in close proximity to I-79, Weston's attractions include the Lewis County Park, the Weston Farmer's Market, the former State Hospital building (the largest hand-cut stone building in the world). Hotels are available at Marketplace Plaza, just east of town. Various fast food restaurants are within city limits. Home cooking is available at various eateries downtown as well as the Hickory House, about one mile north of Weston on US Route 19. A local winery, Lambert's Vineyards is nearby on Gee Lick Road. From Weston, many other attractions are accessible: the Stonewall Jackson Lake, Stonecoal Lake and Jackson's Mill. Each Labor Day weekend, Jackson's Mill serves as the venue for the Jackson's Mill Jubilee. Crafters and vendors fill the area with fine crafts and food. Civil War reenactments take place all weekend (Friday - Monday) as well as engine and logging demonstrations. Jackson's Mill is also home to the State 4-H Camp.
