This Is The Oldest State Park In West Virginia And It’s Incredible

More than 150 years ago, when war tore this region apart, many battles were fought and today, they are remembered and commemorated. The oldest state park in West Virginia is tied to such a battle, and you should definitely pay it a visit.

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:
