The Beauty of West Virginia's Land

John Denver referred to it as "Almost Heaven." No doubt, many West Virginians agree. He sang about the state's, "Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River." While it is rather a small state, 41st in size and measuring 24,230 square miles, it is a beautiful one rich with forests.

Topography and Geography

West Virginia is mountainous and hilly attracting mining and logging opportunities in its past and some still today. The state is a large salt producer and of course, is well known for its history with the coal industry, which remains the largest mining product here. Logging continues to be active in the state, though now with stricter regulations and licensing.

Its Blue Ridge Mountains are a part of the Appalachian Range. The Shenandoah River is a tributary of the Potomac and runs from the Shenandoah and Page valleys into the Potomac near Harpers Ferry.

Natural and Manmade Landmarks and Tourism

When here you don't have to look far to find West Virginia's beauty. Blackwater Falls serve as the centerpiece of a State Park of the same name. This waterfall cascades 62-feet from the Canaan Valley before the river winding its way through Blackwater Canyon.

The New River Gorge National River, maintained by the National Park Service, is in the southern part of the state. Drivers traveling along U.S. Route 19 will cross over the 3,030' long steel-arch bridge, 876' above the river. It was once the world's longest single-span-arched bridge, and remains near the top of the list, now as the fourth longest. It is also currently the third highest bridge in the country and is registered with the National Register of Historic Places.

West Virginia Land for Sale

While obviously some of these National and State treasures are owned and managed by the U.S. and the State of West Virginia, there is quite a bit of neighboring forests and timberland in private hands including river land with great fishing, as well as mountain retreats, and land with acreage to enjoy.

The mountains also attract a lot of winter sports and property available includes hills for sledding and ponds for ice skating, while being close to winter ski resorts. You may find a resort for sale too, or you can develop your own, if you're so inclined. Some land for sale may be perfect to develop and open a B&B or cabin retreat. Or perhaps, you'll find one these for sale that's already operating.

West Virginia's agricultural commodities largely come from the livestock industry. Mainly young chickens, eggs, turkeys, beef, and sheep and lambs are raised on family farms. Hay is grown for livestock feed, some by those also raising the animals; some by outside, independent farmers. Apples, peaches, soybeans, and tobacco are also grown in the state. Some of this farmland is also listed for sale on a regular basis.

State Capital and Other Cities

Charleston, with a population just under 50,000, is the capital of West Virginia. It has the highest population of cities within the state. Charleston has a deep root in U.S. history dating back to Fort Lee being built there in 1787.

Huntington follows as a close second in population with around 49,000 residents, and the third highest number of residents is in the City is Morgantown, a college town and home to West Virginia University with a permanent population of 39,000.
