Sector is an unincorporated community in Hampshire County in the U.S. state of West Virginia. It is located along the west bank of the South Branch Potomac River on Fleming-Sector Road (West Virginia Secondary Route 8/3) across from Glebe.

Sector grew in importance as a result of its operation of a post office and station on the South Branch Valley Railroad in the early 20th century. On the railroad, it was known as Glebe Station because it served Glebe across the South Branch. A suspension bridge once connected the two communities via Fleming-Sector Road, but it was demolished after a succession of serious floods, most recently in the late 1930s or early 1940s and has not been rebuilt since.
