Gone But Not Forgotten, Rock Springs In West Virginia Holds Over 200 Years Of Memories

Along the Ohio River at the northern tip of West Virginia lies the small town of Chester, which for one era of history boasted one of the finest amusement parks in the region: Rock Springs Park.

Sadly, Rock Springs Park isn’t the only significant historic site to have vanished from sight in West Virginia. Another is Fort Pearsall, a French and Indian War stockade from the 1700s.
