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 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!
