Unique remnants of bygone days can be found scattered throughout the state of West Virginia: general stores. Some of these, which have become iconic West Virginia favorites, hearken back over a hundred years to the late 1800s, including one gem tucked away in the beautiful mountains of Hardy County that was built in 1898 – and which you can still visit. Welcome to the Lost River General Store!
