Eastern Panhandle







Beginning in 1748, when he was a teenaged surveyor, George Washington spent a lot of time in what is now West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. He bought his first piece of property in 1750 and by 1777, he owned more land and began spending summers in the area. Follow the Washington Heritage Trail through the area. More than a historical path, it’s a journey through some of the most beautiful countryside in America – endearing small towns, fertile farmland, fern-filled forests and panoramic river overlooks. Relax with a spa treatment, shop at an antique store or explore a fine art gallery.
