This is a replica of the historic buildings in Huntersville WV. .After riding the Highland Scenic Highway Area Saturday Morning I explored the County Roads around Huntersville, Hillsboro and back up into Richwood. Almost ran out of gas and didn't get back to camp till after dark.



Packed up and was out the gate by 8. Really enjoyed the weather this trip and stayed off the slab/asphalt for the most part and found a bunch of WV one and a half lane gravel and blacktop.

This is a marker commemorating the first commercial oil well in the US. It's located right on 47.


There are some great WV adventure riding between this spot and Petroleum,WV and Volcano,WV


North of Volcano there is Mountwood State Park just off US50. There is a WW2 submarine memorial located there.






I thought what an odd area for a sub memorial. There was a town named Cisco on 47 when I was criss crossing county roads and I could not google fu anything on a connection between the town and the sub mentioned on the plaque ???

Again a non epic leisurely paced great weather not too adventurous ADV weekend for me.

Jolo,WV is where a snake handling church is/was, my friend growing up in southern WV, wanted to sell them snakes one summer(1977), he said they paid $10 for copperheads and $20 for rattlesnakes. We used to ride dirt bikes in that area, now part of Hatfield/McCoy trail system, my good friend is bummed about all the people on the road and them wanting him to pay to ride on his home turf. Thanks for sharing photos of places I stomped around growing up, coal was king, everyone had money, leave a job at one mine and be working the next day, it's sad to ride thru towns that are shadows of what they used to be.

Mom and her 5 siblings were born in a company house in McDowell County.

A Pastor died a couple years ago after being bit, as did his father before him.
The Churches right up the hill from the PO are featured on a Discovery Channel show about it.
