About West Virginia

West Virginia

 

img

West Virginia is a state in the Southern Region of the United States of America. It's often called the "Mountain State", being the only state in the USA to lie completely within a mountain range (in this case, the Appalachians).

Originally part of the state of Virginia, the residents of the counties that became West Virginia split from the rest of the state in part due to a disagreement over the issues of slavery and secession. These counties elected to remain with the Union, and the new state was born on June 20, 1863. The population of the state today is around 1.7 million people. The capital city is Charleston, and the state motto is "Mountaineers are always free." Rich in natural resources, physical beauty, and traditional culture, West Virginia's charm is that of being "off the beaten path". West Virginia is a destination for white water rafting, kayaking, skiing, climbing, golf, mountain biking, hiking, and off-roading. Its location between the mid-west and eastern seaboard of the United States means that over 60% of the United States population lives less than 500 miles from West Virginia.

West Virginia is abundant in natural resources, being primarily known as a major producer of coal since the 1800s, in fact, it's the number-two coal producing state in the US. West Virginia has a lot to offer. There's beautiful natural scenery, quaint mountain towns, delicious down-home country food, traditional handicrafts, lots of pioneer and Civil War history, outdoor activities of the rollicking and stately varieties, and great cultural opportunities. The pace of life is slow and relaxed, but with so many exciting things to do, West Virginia is a wonderful place to call home.

At New River Gorge National Park

Victor, Fayette County, West Virginia


Adjoining the New River Gorge—home to America's newest national park, the New River Gorge National Park & Preserve—this small woodland farm was designed as a sustainable family farmstead and retreat. The property takes advantage of proximity to the national park, as both a recreational convenience and long-term investment. It includes a luxury four-bedroom residence, more than 30 acres of woodland, and a seven-acre farm with a cottage, pond, pasture, orchard, riding ring, and four-stall horse barn. A drive of fewer than 10 minutes from the New River Gorge Bridge, the property affords easy access to the National Park Service’s hiking and biking trails and rock-climbing areas and some of its most challenging whitewater paddling. The historic and touristy Town of Fayetteville, also the county seat of Fayette County, is a 15-minute drive from the property, as is the historic town of Ansted, home of scenic Hawks Nest State Park. Though more than two million tourists visit the area annually, the property is located in a quiet rural corner of the upland convenient to the core area of tourist activity. The nearby Endless Wall Trail, a 10-minute drive from the farm, has been ranked the No. 1 national park hiking trail in the country by USA Today.
