Formed 1778, from
Botetourt and Montgomery.
Named for the river
which drains it.
This county had many
pioneer forts and saw
many bloody indian battles.
Here are the world-famed
White Sulphur and
other mineral springs.
Growing up in the 70's and 80's my family spent many weekends in Alderson, West Virginia with my
Great Aunt Beulah. I have wonderful memories of
sitting on her front porch to watch the 4th of July parade.
“In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.”

I can't tell you how excited I was to not only see a painted bunting for the first time, but to actually photograph it. This was taken during our latest photography journey through Georgia and Florida. Jim actually saw it first and described it as a bird with yellow and red on it (he saw it as it was flying away). I was hoping it was a painted bunting as that was one of the birds on my list to try to find. And a few minutes later I captured this!
One of the many highlights of our trip! Artistic Print Available - HERE
