Can't help but repost this applicable tidbit from one of your earlier posts. It is a classic quote:

"Man, there's nothing better than a warm beer before breakfast on a Sunday morning in Clendenin, West Virginia."

The pics are beautiful Granny Sue! Thanks for sharing! I am so excited about the cabin! I wish I could come and work with you and Larry on it! :)

According to local residents there used to be a lampblack plant on Reamer Road, and it was quite a busy place. I've searched online but can find nothing about the plant, although it's possible the abandoned buildings are where the plant was located. Elk Oil Refinery was also on Reamer, I believe.

Reamer Road runs along the Elk River, across from Rte 119. It's pretty and hidden from view, like a trip to a different time and place. I drove down Reamer once when I worked in Clendenin in 1992-1994, and always wanted to go back and take pictures. When a place stays in your imagination like that, you know you have to go back.

Gorgeous pics, Sue, especially that last one. It looks like Hobbiton. And the name Clendenin sounds so Welsh it had me home sick for my university days in Wales.
