One Of The Oldest Rivers In The World Passes Right Through West Virginia

Three of what many geologists believe to be the oldest rivers in the world cut through the Appalachian Region right here in the Eastern United States, and one of the three passes squarely through West Virginia. In fact, although West Virginia has several well known rivers within its boundaries, this one might be the most famously associated with our state: the New River.
