West Virginia Ordnance Works (now known as the McClintic Wildlife Management Area and TNT area to locals) was a United States Army Ammunition manufacturing facility constructed and operated during World War II.
Located about 6-7 miles on Route 62 north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia in Mason County encompassing 8,323 acres (33.68 km2). The $45 million plant employed 3500 at its peak and operated from 1942 to 1945.
The site was disposed of following the war and land was utilized by creating a landfill, the McClintic Wildlife Management Area, the Mason County Airport and an industrial park among others.
It was also around here that the first known sighting of the cryptic dubbed “Mothman” occurred in November 15th, 1966.
