What once was a prospering coal town overflowing with residents and business is now known as a ghost town complete with abandoned buildings and eerie remains of the life that once was. At its time of operation in the 1920s, the Thurmond Depot was a place full of hustle and bustle and among one of the greatest railroads found along the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. Key buildings, like the grand hotel, continued to be destroyed by fires and were never rebuilt. For a spooky date and to learn more about this town, take the self-guided tour.
Visit Blackwater Falls State Park to witness one of the most jaw-dropping sunsets Almost Heaven has to offer. Hike the short and relatively flat Lindy Point Trail and be greeted by a viewing deck overlooking the canyon at almost 2,700 feet below. One of the state’s most photographed spots, this sunset hike is extra stunning when then golden sun sets behind the blazing orange and fiery red covered mountains.
Dinner with a View
Take a trip to Clarksburg this fall for a lovely dining experience with your special someone at The Wonder Bar Steakhouse. Since first opening in 1946, this top-tier dining destination has added a sprawling patio and comforting fire-pit to its menu. Thankfully, the delicious meals have stayed the same. Pair the tender ribeyes and endless list of fine wines with the vast autumn views of the town’s rolling hills and valleys.
