About two weeks ago, on May 12th, I attended a meeting with the Western Greenbrier Historical Society. One of their objectives is to enhance the historical significance of the West End of Greenbrier County. This led me to contemplate how we could attract tourism to the area.
Not long ago, Governor Justice introduced the Seneca Trail Skyway, which inspired me to propose the creation of "The Greenbrier Valley Historical Loop." This scenic drive spans 104 miles, taking approximately two hours and thirty minutes to complete, starting from downtown Lewisburg and passing through Rainelle, Hinton, Alderson, and Ronceverte.
The purpose of this route is to promote tourism in these communities by showcasing their historical businesses and landmarks. Moreover, the drive itself is incredibly picturesque. I suggest developing a dedicated road map that includes a list of businesses and historical sites along the route. This initiative holds great potential and merits further consideration.
