West Virginia’s Oldest Five And Dime Store Is Worth A Day Trip

The history of a region is never more well defined than through the physical remains of its past. It is for this reason that there are government programs whose sole purpose it is to protect historical building and monuments. To remember the places that mark our past and inform our future. Some of these places remain not only standing but still active. West Virginia’s oldest five and dime store is one such place.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
