What Bert Has To Say About Charleston Metro Area

Charleston is the state capital and government and commercial center of West Virginia. Hydrocarbon resources (coal, oil and gas) and salt and brine deposits led to industrial growth as a center for chemicals and chemical-related industries, which stretch up the Kanawha Valley to the east. There are some modest cultural amenities and a nice performing arts center downtown.
