    Something about climbing a fence in a small southern-WV town leads me to believe we would come face to face with the two local peace-keepers, Smith and Wesson. :eek1 I'm not as brave as buff36 :lol3

    I emailed Mr Geiger photos this morning, and figured he's close enough to take care of it. He took care of the one pretty quickly at Jackson's Mill back in the spring.

    It is sad to see markers abandoned like this, though, isn't it?

    so that means all those along rt 60 in Kanawha county still need pictures?

    I'm working on kanawha county on the map. And that looks like a good route into Charleston to take photos of markers next week.

    nevermind, I see dipstick is working rt 60 in kanawha co.

    kanawha co is mapped.

    Holly Grove Mansion

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Holly Grove Mansion, also known as Holly Grove Inn or Ruffner Mansion, is a historic home located at Charleston, West Virginia on the grounds of the West Virginia State Capitol. It is a large brick house with a front section made to accommodate three floors and rear section housing two. It features a massive two story, semi-circular portico at the front entrance. It was constructed originally in 1815 as the home of Daniel Ruffner, one of a family which helped develop the early salt industry in the Kanawha Valley. It gained its present day appearance in about 1902 when new owner, John Nash, undertook substantial remodeling.<SUP id=cite_ref-dhr_1-0 class=reference>[2]</SUP> In 1979, the mansion underwent an extensive rehabilitation when it became headquarters for the West Virginia Commission on Aging.<SUP id=cite_ref-2 class=reference>[3]</SUP>
    It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

    Dang, looks like I've got some catching up to do on the spreadsheet. Between intothenew, Dipstick, and I (and a few others), there have been about 150 posts in the past 5 days :eek1 . I'll try to have it updated by tonight.

    Thanks everyone! :clap
