Curtin is a nearly abandoned unincorporated community in eastern Nicholas County, West Virginia, United States. The area is situated at the bottomland surrounding the mouth of the Cherry River at its confluence with the Gauley River. Curtin is also the location where West Virginia Route 55 and West Virginia Route 20 cross the Gauley.


Curtin was founded by General G. W. Curtin, and most likely was named for him or his family.[2]
