A Picturesque Get Away

A camera will be the first thing you pack! Home to Spruce Knob, the highest point in West Virginia, and some of the most rugged mountain terrain to be found on the East Coast, Pendleton County is a picturesque get away that exemplifies the slogan “West Virginia, Wild and Wonderful.” With two national forests, the Monongahela and the George Washington, occupying a significant portion of Pendleton County real estate, we offer some of the best hunting and fishing in the Eastern U.S.

You will enjoy experiencing Seneca Rocks or the Via Ferrata at NRocks. For those whose quest for adventure is not quite so physically demanding, Pendleton has a softer side.

Rich in History and Hospitality

From Native American history at the National Forest Discovery Center to Harper’s Old Country Store at Seneca Rocks to Coconut Pie at the Fireside Cafe or a walking tour of Victorian homes, the charming architecture of the town of Franklin, Pendleton County beckons the history lover in us all.

Our heritage is rooted deep within the ridges and valleys of our county. These accounts of history are kept alive through events such as the Spring Fest or Treasure Mountain Festival and through stories that are passed down throughout the generations.

Come on over and visit us in Pendleton County, we’d love to have you!
