Sorry bout the pic disappearing. The server was off line for an hour or two yesterday. It's usually quite reliable but occasionally requires a reboot and yesterday was one of those days.

@ 50bluedirt, you are correct. If you google some of the key words in the description you should find websites with full stories on the history of the place, and even maps keyed to the individual properties and the history of each.

New tag forthcoming...

I didnt move it too far, I passed up some good tags but they were even closer to Bramwell. That little town is full of history and a great place to visit. My wife loved it and she purchased several books at the museum in the train station.

We rode all weekend and I took several tag pictures but I think this is the one I want to post.

This is a resort named for the mineral water that contains NO sulphur, it was a booming resort pre civil war and once hosted George and Martha Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Robert E Lee, and Napoleon Bonapartes brother. Its only about a 1/2 mile or so from the VA border. There is SWEET riding in every direction. Just north of an intersection of two roads that add up to 314.

I will post two pics, either can be the tag, first is the main resort

JW2011 052 by Rider_wv, on Flickr

Second is the pavilion

JW2011 054 by Rider_wv, on Flickr

I really meant for the Pavilion to be the tag...

sorry if this has been a tag before, I didnt following this thread too much in the early days.

Wonderful WV Magazine profiled that place several years ago. Always looked like a nice place to visit.

I highly recommend the Mountain Shadow trail Backway and the little road that goes through Zenith, great one lane riding

Not a shabby move at all––not quite a hundred miles but not much short of it either. Glad you had a nice visit to Bramwell. This is what makes tagging fun... introducing someone to an interesting place, sending them across some great roads, clues that make people start researching regardless of whether they can do the ride. One great thing about West Virginia––since mountains cover most of the state it's hard to place a tag where you can't make a great ride out of it. This new tag ain't gonna last long... way to close to Roanoke and the NRV, with Potts and Peters Mtns. being the only deterrents.
