    I was there the day she was put in the river. Watched her go. The bridge, not the EX

    And the new tag. They could've had witch trials in this town.

    Good job. I was on my way to grab it. Glad I stopped for a chew of snuff and decided to check to see if anyone grabbed it yet. Now hurry up and drop it somewhere :lol3

    This is 1 county north, close to where there was severe flooding earlier, and also where there is a big district fair happening now.


    Also this old school house across the road from it.

    I may need a few more clues(I'm on on the road) for a timely Grab. Plus I turned and went the opposite direction I'm down in Braxton County now.

    More clues:
    The litttle road that the church and school share the name of, is between where the district fair is and the town that is the home of 1 of our state senators.
    The main highway runs north/south; following that designation you would turn west about 1/2 mile. This little road actually runs southwest off of the main highway.

    Clear as mud? Sounds like you are in the wrong direction anyway. Have a safe ride.

    I'm starting to feel like a tag hog.

    Here's the grab: East Run Church between Farmington and Rachel off RT 250.

    Dang, you probably rode right past our farm. You could have stopped in and said hi to my mom.

    When I was a kid and spent my summers with my grandparents at their farm, we would sometimes go there on Sunday afternoon for a picnic lunch after church. Lots of memories.

    There is a historical marker on the road out to the hatchery that was listed as missing in the state guide because it was incorrectly stated as being located 30 miles away. Nice old church - St Matthew Lutheran. It's on the WV Historical Markers thread.
