Planning a trip to West Virginia ?

4 Nov

If you’re planning to go to WV this is a comprehensive index of the historic markers that have been erected. I’ve been to some of them and they are worthwhile tracking down. Locating them, creating a gps route linking them together and visiting them all would make for an amazing ride.–near–huntersville-wv

“A great source of pride in West Virginia’s fascinating state and local history, the Mountain State’s historical highway markers have attracted the interest and attention of young and old for some 65 years. Since April 1937, when the first sign was placed at a former capitol building site in the state capital, nearly 1,000 West Virginia historical highway markers have been erected to commemorate prehistoric, historic, scenic, and geological sites. From the state’s two panhandles to its southernmost regions, historical highway markers grace the roadsides in each of West Virginia’s 55 counties.”

WV is one of the best places that I’ve ridden to; I’ve ridden there once solo, once with some Road Toads and twice riding 2-up with my wife.
