General Information

Description - The inhabitants of the farming counties in the southeastern corner of West Virginia have been living in relative harmony with the land since the late 1700's. Monroe County's Farm Heritage Road offers a picture of life in these rural and agricultural communities which in may ways, retains the character imparted upon it by previuos generations. The route encompasses three distinct geographical settings: the quaint winding course of Indian Creek, the gently rolling plateaus of farmland, and the picturesque Sweet Springs Valley nestled alongside the lofty Peters Mountain in the Appalachian Ridge and Valley region. The push of industry and commercialism has largely by-passed the area, therefore, many old houses, farms, and public buildings remain from throughout the county's 200 year history.

Attractions - The Farm Heritage Road is known for it's Cultural, Historical, Natural and Scenic Attractions.

Directions from : Starting from Peterstown (southern terminus, the route follows WV 12 north to Forest Hills, WV 122 from Forest Hill to Raines Corner, US 219 from Raines Corner to Union, WV 3 from Union to Sweet Springs, and US 311 north or south to the Virginia line. All are two-lane, paved roads.
