Elkins, home of Davis & Elkins College and the Augusta Heritage Series
Mingo Flats with its surprising (and almost hidden) sculptures,
Poet Laureate. Close by are the stunning Blackwater Falls.
General Lewis Inn and the scene of the murder trial in which the outcome hinged on the testimony of a ghost,
Sharp's Store, a step back in time to an unrestored but carefully maintained general store that has been in the same family for decades,
Marlinton, hardy town that has survived floods and fire, nestled in one of our state's most beautiful counties and home of the annual Great Greenbrier River Race.
...and many, many more fascinating places. I hope you have enjoyed this meandering armchair trip along a memorable road, one filled with memories for anyone who has found themselves traveling 219. Be sure to visit the Traveling 219 website, where you can read some fascinating and memorable history and posts, like this one about a special Christmas visit.
