The Pocahontas Fuel Company owned the Itmann Company Store and Office (pictured), located in the company town of Itmann. Designed by Alex B. Mahood, the store was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. The town and store both take their names from Pocahontas Fuel president I. T. Mann.[1][2]

The United States Census Bureau separates places by incorporation for statistical purposes during its decennial census. To incorporate, communities may need to meet statutory requirements made by their respective state, such as thresholds in population or specificities relative to location.[a] Federally, the Census Bureau defines incorporated places as areas, whose boundaries do not cross state lines, that "provide governmental functions for a concentration of people", as opposed to "minor civil [divisions], which generally ... provide services or administer an area without regard, necessarily, to population".[5] Unincorporated communities, classified as census designated places (CDPs), lack elected municipal officers and boundaries with legal status.[5] The Bureau identified 169 CDPs in the state of West Virginia at the 2010 census.

The Municipal Code of West Virginia, which governs incorporation, requires applicant municipal corporations (places for incorporation) that cover an area more than 1 square mile (2.6 km2) to have a minimum of 500 inhabitants or freeholders per square mile, and those under 1 square mile to have at least 100 inhabitants or freeholders. Applicant areas must not reside within a municipality "urban in character", nor claim an area "disproportionate to its number of inhabitants".[6] Upon approval, the state classifies municipal corporations as a Class I city, with a population of more than fifty thousand, a Class II city, with a population between ten thousand and fifty thousand, a Class III city, with a population between two thousand and ten thousand, or a Class IV town or village, with a population of less than two thousand.[7] All municipalities can "use a common seal", defend, maintain, or institute a proceeding in court, and hold, take, purchase, or lease, as lessee, property for municipal purposes.[8]

Of the fifty-five counties in West Virginia, Logan is home to the most CDPs, with twenty-two, followed by Fayette, with eighteen, and Raleigh, with fifteen. The largest CDP by population is Teays Valley, with 13,175 residents, while Bowden, with 9 residents over 0.12 square miles (0.31 km2), represents the state's smallest CDP by both population and area.[9] Upper Falls, which spans 17.18 square miles (44.5 km2), constitutes the largest West Virginian CDP by area.[9]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Mississippi, for instance, only requires potential incorporated areas to have a population of 300, whereas Florida requires potential incorporated areas to have a population of at least 1,500 if the county in which the area resides has a population of 75,000 or less, or of at least 7,500 if the county in which the area resides has a population of more than 75,000.[3][4]
  2. ^ If the CDP covers more than one county, the county that contains a majority of the CDP's population is listed first.
  3. ^ During the 2000 United States Census, the Census Bureau counted the communities of Amherstdale and Robinette together as Amherstdale-Robinette; in 2010, the Bureau made a distinction between the two. A part of Accoville was also formed from the disbanded CDP. The population total, total area, and coordinates of Amherstdale-Robinette reflect the 2000 census.[9][10][11]
  4. ^ Sometime after 1958, the United States Geological Survey's Geographic Names Information System listed two names, "Tornado" and "Upper Falls", for the community. The United States Board on Geographic Names (USBGN) removed the name "Tornado" at the request of an Upper Falls Community Association member, but in 2013, the USBGN voted to change the CDP's name to Tornado, West Virginia after the Kanawha County Commission voted to support "Tornado" over "Upper Falls". The Census Bureau recognized "Upper Falls" as the community's name in the 2010 census.[9][12]
