Hinton, the county seat of Summers County is a 30-minute drive. Hinton, founded in 1871, grew rapidly as the hub of a growing railroad industry serving the New River coal fields, passenger travel and coast to coast freight lines. Today, Hinton serves the growing tourist and technology industries. Situate at the confluence of the New River, Bluestone River and Greenbrier River, adjoining the 2000-acre Bluestone Lake, Hinton is truly a gateway to water recreation. The 80,000-acre New River National River Park, Bluestone State Park, Pipestem State Park Resort and 17,000-acre Bluestone Wildlife Management Area are recreational cornerstones in the area. The new 10,000-acre Boy Scout high adventure camp is an hour’s drive. Hospital, grocery shopping, pharmacy, hardware/farm supply and dining are available.
THE NEW RIVER AND BLUESTONE LAKE
The New River Gorge was a vast and largely unsettled wilderness until the C&O railroad was built on the eastern side of the river in the 1880’s. The railroad opened up the rich coalfields and virgin timber stands of the region. Early “mountaineers” settled the area and soon were carving out mountain farms and raising families.
The New River is the second oldest river in the world, preceded only by the Nile; it is the oldest river in North America. The New River is unique because it begins in Blowing Rock, N.C. and flows north through Virginia into West Virginia. The Nile and Amazon are the only other major rivers that also flow north. Year after year, it produces more citation fish than any other warm water river in WV. Small-mouth bass, large-mouth bass, crappie, catfish, sunfish, hybrid striped bass, and muskie are all common species of fish found in the New River and Bluestone Lake.
Bluestone Lake is over 2000 acres at summer pool and is the state’s third largest body of water. Great hunting and fishing opportunities abound at the 17,632-acre Bluestone Wildlife Area adjacent to the park and nearby Camp Creek State Forest.
NEARBY GREENBRIER COUNTY
Lewisburg, a 35-minute drive, is the county seat of Greenbrier County and home to the WV Osteopathic Medical School (800 students) and the New River Community and Technical College. The area is a strong economic generator with a solid workforce employed in county/state government, tourism, hospitality, education, retail, construction, wood products, mining and agriculture. The Greenbrier Valley and surrounding area is richly blessed with a wide array of cultural events that keep life in the valley interesting and satisfying. A year-round live theater, Carnegie Hall (one of four in the USA), fine dining, art galleries and boutiques make up the thriving downtown historic district in Lewisburg.
In 2011, Lewisburg was named Coolest Small Town in America and is just a 35-minute drive to complete shopping, churches, schools, medical-dental facilities, fine dining, and a modern hospital. The airport, with the longest runway in the state is just 45 minutes away and has daily flights to Atlanta and Washington DC.
The world renowned 4-Star Greenbrier Resort, home of the PGA tour, is a 40-minute drive. Several other area golf courses are available in the area. Rock climbing, ziplining, horseback riding and the 100 + mile long Hatfield-McCoy ATV trail makes for a very active recreation area.
BOUNDARIES AND SURVEY
The property has a recent boundary survey plat (minus out conveyances). The survey plat is available for viewing in the Maps & Documents section above. The property is being sold by the boundary and not by the acre.
There is about 5 acres of open land with the remaining 5 acres in forest.
Beechnuts, Hickory nuts, sweet White Oak and Red Oak Acorns provide a sustainable food source for the squirrels, chipmunks, whitetail deer and wild turkey that live in abundance in the forest.
Many species of songbirds and woodpeckers thrive in the special habitat that large older trees and younger emerging stands and make their home in this special forest environ. It is exciting to see and hear the large and very vocal Pileated Woodpecker, with its bright red crest dressed in a black and white tuxedo, sweep through the tall canopy in search of a morning snack.
