These Are 11 Of The Oldest Structures In West Virginia That Are Still Standing

Even though West Virginia wasn’t a state until the Civil War, this land has history that goes back further than that. Historical structures stand as monuments to our past and tell a story in a way that paper and ink simply cannot match. Among the historical structures still standing, here are 11 of the oldest.

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!
