The Joel McCann Memorial Trail is part of what will one day be a 16-mile rail-trail from Barrackville to Mannington following the former Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad. Currently, a 1-mile section of the rail-trail is complete along Buffalo Creek through downtown Mannington and named after one of the city’s longtime fire chiefs.
The town itself is named after Charles Manning, a civil engineer with B&O Railroad, and an old railroad depot, built in 1906, sits along the trail. Plans are under consideration to refurbish the building.
