Matt — I love your photography, especially the one of the Oakwood bridge. Do you have that photo in the daylight? My law firm has a small office in Charleston, WV, and I’d like to get a nice skyline image of Charleston for our web.
I was born here in charleston but i moved when i was little. i love it there and most of my family lives there. i visit a lot. it really makes you appreciate nature and want to live somewhere peaceful and beautiful. i miss it so much and love it there
I have never lived in WVA,but my parents were born & raised there. No matter what the photos are of…Capitol or all the nice bridges or even the poorest little towns( neighborhoods) are all a wonderful sight to see and people should really apreciate the love of the State, the kindness of the people(rich or poor)! I will be in town to visit my family and the State I call My Home( Charleston Wva ) and I will be taking many,many photos and would be glad to put them online for everyone to see. I am 45 and have been visiting there all my life and everytime I come to town I cry when its time to go back to Michigan. WVA is a part of me, a part of my parents and my children and theirs to come. Its where I will retire and live my last days, in the most beautiful state in the world! WVA!!! Nothing can change my mind. I have roots there and a long family history. The story’s my parents told of the past and my grand parents, you can not put a price an any of that. Photos or not you will never know what its like until your heart has been pulled in that direction all your life and youknow thats where you were ment to be!! ( my retirement ) I will move there and Open a nice historical bed & breakfast and meet alot of people and make new friends for life! Thats always been my dream and in just a few short yrs maybe sooner if I’m lucky, I will be on my way. I will still continue to take photos of anything and everthing in WVA til the end. Because it is a GRAND place to be, to see, to visit, to talk to people and to just enjoy everything and everyone! Nothing can beat that!
Ever since 2007 I’ve had the number 304 pop up in my head! Just today my cousin told me to look up the place with that area code. Charleston , WV came up and It’s a beautiful site to see. I’m a intuitive person and I believe God wants me to move here to start my life! Looking at these pictures further interest me to make the move! I’m joining the United States Airforce this fall and hope to get stationed here. If not, then I will make this move when I’m retired form the airforce! I’m originally from Toledo, Ohio and I’ve always said my husband is not here. I strongly believe that he is here, Charleston, WV! I can’t wait to make this future move and see what God has in store for me! To Mrs. Lockhart, you enocouraged me as well. Like I said, i’m a very intuitive person amd you posted your comment on my deceased Granny’s birthday, which I take as another sign! You’ve said nothing but positive things just as i know she would have! I can’t wait! thank you to the person that put these beautiful pictures up. i know you can’t have the good without the bad, but i’m ready to experience it all!
wrong chief…… .212k is nitro, scott depot and 12 other towns included. 53k is the city limit pop. Charleston “city limits” is the same size as Blacksburg VA (home of the VA TECH)…..a small town of about 50 k ….Charleston even has a small town feel. It’s a city because you want it to be not because it is…..and after all it is WV 🙂
