Meadow Bridge is a town in Fayette County, West Virginia, United States. The population was 379 at the 2010 census. The first settler of the area was John Gwin, closley followed by Dan griffin. The community took its name from a nearby bridge over Meadow Creek. Some time in 1890, the first Meadow Bridge post office was established, and gave the area the name of Montrode.This was later changed to Clute, after the virginia lumberman Theodore Clute who came with the railroad to establish a saw mill in the area. With the help of the Meadow River Lumber company, and Theodore Clute, millions of feet of lumber were cut, and soon a town sprang up with shops and houses. With industry in meadow bridge, on July 26, 1920, it was incorperated into an official town. Although industry came to the small town of meadow bridge, progression was slow and arduious, after several years of hard fighting, in 1924, they finnaly were able to bring a highschool to the town, Meadow Bridge High School. Part of their troubles, was the fact that they were isolated from the rest of Fayette County. That changed in 1937, when a 7 mile streach of road was hard surfaced linking Meadow bridge, and the near by town of Danese. In 1938 a road linking the town of Hinton and Rainelle, ran through meadow bridge, linking all the towns together, and by extension, to Route 41. This finally gave Meadow Bridge a path to the wester part of Fayette County.
