Frametown is an unincorporated community in Braxton County, West Virginia, United States. While the heart of Frametown itself is rather small, there is a large sprawling area that considers itself to be part of the Frametown community. This is due to the large range of the United States Postal Service ZIP Code 26623 which covers the immediate area.

As stated, there really is no "downtown Frametown", and there are no stoplights. The primary points of interest, would be a restaurant: "Granny's Kitchen", a post office, and the Frametown Elementary School.

Frametown is centered on the intersection of Interstate 79 and West Virginia Route 4. The closest neighboring incorporated towns are Flatwoods, Sutton, and Gassaway.

According to the Geographic Names Information System, Frametown has also been known throughout its history as Frame Mill, Frames, and Frames Mill. The community was named after the local Frame family.[2]
