Meadow Bridge, West Virginia (WV), a community in Fayette County, was incorporated in 1920 and named for the location of a bridge over the upper Meadow Creek near the Meadow River. The Meadow River Lumber Company began timbering in the region in the early 1900s and built a line through the town, the Sewell Valley Railroad, which connected its mill at Rainelle with the mainline of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway (C&O).
