The Wagon Wheel Heritage Farm is located along the Old Blue Sulphur Turnpike where the stagecoach, horses, and wagons would have once traveled to the Blue Sulphur Springs, Alderson, Lewisburg, Charleston, and throughout the area. Many Turnpikes in early America were frequently traveled from Philadelphia to the Cumberland Gap.

Eventually these early routes branched out across America. Days of the stagecoach, supply wagons, carts, buggies are long gone. The land however remains virtually the same. Like coming home to see an old friend, a farmland property is just that. Like the wind and the rain, the roads we travel, the land and the memories stay in our hearts. The sound of the hooves of an approaching stagecoach would have been an exciting sight.

The Blue Sulphur Turnpike was originally a Native American Trail, then later became one of the early Turnpikes of America. Blue Sulphur Turnpike joined the James River-Kanawha Turnpike near Dawson, WV. James River-Kanawha Turnpike was a main route of travel from the Lewisburg area to the Kanawha Valley from the days of the Native Americans until the development of the Midland Trail, which is now U. S. Route 60 and part of I-64. See the photo Gallery for historic maps depicting Pioneer Turnpike Routes throughout West Virginia.

General Lewis followed Indian trails along this route when taking his army west to Point Pleasant. Civil War troops went back and forth via this route to the Kanawha Valley. Confederate troops camped at Blue Sulphur Springs to guard against Union troops using the route to invade Virginia. Confederate General Robert E. Lee obtained his famous Warhorse Traveller in the area of the Blue Sulphur Spring.

During the winter of 1862-63, several hundred Georgia troops camped at Blue Sulphur Springs and eighty-nine died. The troops would have camped here to block access to Virginia from the Kanawha Valley. Their presence here reaffirms that the road was a major thoroughfare during the period. Union troops burned the facilities of the Blue Sulphur Springs Resort to the ground in 1864 and it was never rebuilt. The old Springhouse still stands and is a protected historic landmark of the area. A monument marks the area of the Georgia troops cemetery.

The Greenbrier River at Alderson is a short 20-minute drive from the property for the water enthusiast. The New River is also nearby at Sandstone a 20-minute drive. Meadow River Wildlife Management Area and the New River National Park Service provide 1000’s of additional acres of recreational hunting land in the surrounding area. Beautiful Wagon Wheel Heritage Farm fronts Bennett Mountain Road. Exceptional access.
