Capon Springs and Farm has something for everyone: golf, swimming, fishing, tennis, badminton, shuffleboard, ping-pong, hiking, fabulous spa, escape room and wonderful library. And the food – beyond delicious! A real family resort in a beautiful setting!
Capon Springs is a hidden and less known wonder

Love Sam Eplin! Have never met him or had the chance to see him perform in person – but his music stays on my mind and in my heart!

LOVE visiting the town of Alderson! Beautiful old restored train depot, great food choices from diners to higher-end. And J.M. Alderson’s Store (the longest running in WV, I believe.) Great for WV books and antiques. Men and women’s fashion accessories. SO much fun! 🙂

Alderson’s store in Alderson, WV has so many unique gifts, that are not available anywhere else. Very clean and friendly staff. Stop by and see them. It is well worth your time.
Sue Baker says
Alderson, WV is a good place to visit, and has a lot to see. J.M. Alderson’s store is a really good place to find some different type and kinds of things. Love to go there. It can take you a good while just to look at every thing. They have some nice things. Go check them out.

If you get a chance to enjoy the music of the duo, Key to Adam, you must do so. They are absolutely great!

No longer live in wv and it’s so damn hard to get a donut as decent as The Donut Shop in Buckhannon! I miss being able to hop in there after midnight and I definitely miss the pepperoni rolls!

Oma Joy from Weirton, WV wasn’t on the band list? I’m shocked. Those guys have been killing it.
