A Picturesque Get Away
A camera will be the first thing you pack! Home to Spruce Knob, the highest
point in West Virginia, and some of the most rugged mountain terrain to be found
on the East Coast, Pendleton County is a picturesque get away that exemplifies
“West Virginia, Wild and Wonderful.” With two national forests, the Monongahela
and the George Washington, occupying a significant portion of Pendleton County
real estate, we offer some of the best hunting and fishing in the Eastern U.S.
will enjoy experiencing Seneca Rocks or the Via Ferrata at Nelson Rocks. For
those whose quest for adventure is not quite so physically demanding, Pendleton
has a softer side.
Rich in History and
From Native American history at the National Forest Discovery Center to
Harper’s Old Country Store at Seneca Rocks to the charming architecture of the
town of Franklin, Pendleton County beckons the history lover in us all.
Our heritage is rooted deep within the ridges and valleys of our county. These
accounts of history are kept alive through events such as the Treasure Mountain
Festival and through stories that are passed down throughout the generations.
Come on over and visit us in Pendleton County, we’d love to have you!
