The Town of Alderson, affectionately known as the “Gem of the Hills,” is tucked away in the lush Greenbrier Valley of southern West Virginia. It is situated along the beautiful Greenbrier River and includes Greenbrier and Monroe Counties.
In 1763, the nearby Muddy Creek settlements were destroyed by Shawnee Indians under Chief Cornstalk. It was not until 1777 that the town was settled by “Elder” John Alderson, a frontier missionary for whom the town was named. He founded the first Baptist church in the Greenbrier Valley and later a Baptist seminary that was later moved north to become Alderson-Broaddus College at Philippi, WV.
The Federal Reformatory for Women, the first federal prison for women, was established in 1927. The town is renowned for its annual Independence Day festival, which West Virginia Living Magazine acknowledged as the state’s “Best Independence Day Celebration” in 2012.
Alderson, WV, today is primarily a residential community with retail establishments in its downtown historic district. These serve the many camps and vacation homes along the Greenbrier River and tourists visiting the surrounding countryside. Commerce and property values are increasing due to increased tourism and the sheer beauty of the river and surrounding farms. Alderson itself contains many fine homes from the turn of the 20th Century, many of which are in mint condition, never having been altered from their well-tended, original appearance.
The town of Alderson has been an active community for generations. Boasting the largest and most popular 4th of July day parade in the state is hosted by the Town of Alderson. Alderson’s amenities include churches, an elementary school, a motel, a bank, Dollar General, Family Dollar, gas/convenience stores, a medical clinic, a pharmacy, and restaurants. Alderson is located along the Greenbrier River in Greenbrier County and Monroe County, incorporated in 1881. Alderson was originally settled in 1777 by “Elder” John Alderson, a frontier missionary for whom the town is named Alderson is also home to “Camp Cupcake,” the minimum-security federal prison where Martha Stewart spent her vacation.

There is also a modern hospital, all attendant medical facilities, and all the big box stores. Several new schools have been built in the area.

THE GREENBRIER RIVER
The lower Greenbrier River possesses the excitement of life on one of the nation’s great wild rivers. The focus of a vast outdoor-recreation destination flows untamed out of the lofty Alleghenies, attracting anglers, paddlers, and naturalists from across the globe.
At 162 miles long, the Greenbrier is the longest undammed river left in the Eastern United States. It is primarily used for recreational pursuits and is well known for its fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and floating opportunities. Its upper reaches flow through the Monongahela National Forest, paralleled for 77 miles by the Greenbrier River Trail, a rail trail that runs between the communities of Cass and North Caldwell.
It has always been a valuable water route, with many of the important cities in the watershed being established river ports. The river gives the receiving waters of the New River an estimated 30% of its water volume. Over three-fourths of the watershed is an extensive karstic (cavern system), which supports fine trout fishing, cave exploration, and recreation. Many important festivals and public events are held along the river throughout the watershed.
The Greenbrier is formed at Durbin in northern Pocahontas County by the confluence of the East Fork Greenbrier River and the West Fork Greenbrier River, both ephemeral streams rising at elevations exceeding 3,300 feet and flowing for their entire lengths in northern Pocahontas County. From Durbin, the Greenbrier generally flows south-southwest through Pocahontas, Greenbrier, and Summers Counties, past several communities, including Cass, Marlinton, Hillsboro, Ronceverte, Fort Spring, Alderson, and Hinton, where it flows into the New River.
Along most of its course, the Greenbrier accommodated the celebrated Indian warpath known as the Seneca Trail (Great Indian Warpath). From the vicinity of present-day White Sulphur Springs, the Trail followed Anthony’s Creek down to the Greenbrier near the present Pocahontas-Greenbrier County line. It then ascended the River to the vicinity of Hillsboro and Droop Mountain. It made its way through present Pocahontas County through future Marlinton, Indian Draft Run, and Edray.
THE NEW RIVER AND BLUESTONE LAKE
Nearby, about a 25-minute drive to the New River and the 2000-acre Bluestone Lake at Hinton. 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 other major rivers flowing north. It produces more citation fish yearly than any other warm water river in WV. Smallmouth bass, largemouth 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 the summer pool and is the state’s third-largest body of water. Excellent hunting and fishing opportunities abound at the 17,632-acre Bluestone Wildlife Area adjacent to the park and nearby Camp Creek State Forest.
Lewisburg, the Greenbrier County seat, was voted the Coolest Small Town in America and is just a 35-minute drive to the thriving downtown historic district. The downtown boasts a year-round live theatre, Carnegie Hall, a new $3MM library, several fabulous restaurants, antique shops, and boutiques.
