A pristine, close-knit community of rolling farms and babbling brooks, unscathed by the commercial modern world. What is there to explore in Monroe County, Southern WV?
Without the stoplights or fast good joints of contemporary small towns, Monroe County is a stunning example of a seemingly forgotten, old-fashioned lifestyle. If you're looking for a real getaway into the countryside, you won't find a more rural spot. The kind folks of Monroe County have kept it pristine and untouched by the commercialization that's overtaking the rest of the world.
Along with the genuine old-time lifestyle come old-time values. Southern hospitality is part of the moral fiber, and everyone offers a greeting, eager to share their stories and advice. Give in to the quaint allure of Appalachia as it's been through the ages, and enjoy its natural, scenic beauty.
Follow the heritage quilt trail, watch the hawks fly above the forests from Hanging Rock Raptor Observatory, or delve into the unique stories of the Civil War from the Confederate-supporting town of Union.
