Most People Don’t Know There’s A Working Lighthouse In West Virginia And You Need To Visit

Yes, you read that title correctly. West Virginia has a real working lighthouse. This lighthouse sits on Summersville lake in Nicholas County, but it is not a historical structure like so many others that line America’s shores. This one was erected in 2013.

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!
