    Good question!  My grandmother is originally from there.  There is a family reunion every year but I haven't been able to go.  I visited once when I was a child so I don't remember all that much.  I hear it's beautiful!  I had connected with a bunch of people on FB from there and they showed amazing pictures.  My grandmother's family were from the coal miners generation.  She grew up dirt poor and told me a story every Christmas about a coal train driving through town that would throw apples and oranges to the barefoot children chasing after it on Christmas morning.

    It is a very beautiful state.  My husband and I visited a friend in Summersville, WV about 2 weeks ago.  He talked about a lot of the people in WV being unemployed but unfortunately that is true in most of our country.  He has lived there all of his life and loves it.
