Uvilla is an unincorporated community on West Virginia Route 230 in Jefferson County, West Virginia, United States. Morgan Academy of West Virginia used to be located here, before moving to Gosling Marsh Road in Berkeley County, West Virginia. In addition, Jesse Shultzenbeger and the Route 230 Rockers used to perform at the Lutheran church in Uvilla, which rented its multi-purpose building and oak grove yard out to Morgan Academy.

History[edit]

In October 1896, the area surrounding Uvilla was one of three areas (the others being near Charles Town and Halltown) in the United States to begin Rural Free Delivery (RFD) service.
