Owned and Operated by brothers Terry (Deceased 2011) and Ronald Marcus, Marcus Enterprises is committed to achieving leadership in the development and residential construction industry.
Since 1963, Marcus Enterprises has continued to design, build, and enhance the already natural beauty of Jefferson County, West Virginia with such previous projects as Belvedere Heights, Cloverdale Heights, and Briar Run Estates. The latter two of the aforementioned developments, Cloverdale Heights and Briar Run Estates, were both voted “Best Residential Development in West Virginia”.
The Marcus brothers also owned and operated the Turf Motel and Rib Room located in downtown Charles Town, West Virginia until the mid 2012s. Established in 1955 by late president, Charles C. Marcus, the Turf had become a Charles Town landmark with its huge 1950’s era neon sign and the most succulent prime rib around. This family owned and operated business had deluxe accommodations to suit every need and budget and is conveniently located next to the Hollywood Casino & Charles Town Races. It has since been purchased by another company and continues operation.
