This Is What Life In West Virginia Looked Like In 1935. WOW.

West Virginia, like everywhere else, has come a long way since the mid-30s. We were only 70 years into our statehood and in the middle of a depression. Everything from the way we dress to the ways we educate our children has changed. Here are a few photos that show what life in West Virginia looked like back then.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
