Lewisburg is nestled in the broad rolling Greenbrier Valley, surrounded by lush evergreen and maple covered mountains, blending a unique mixture of natural and man-made beauty. Nearby streams and rivers provide superb fishing, canoeing and whitewater rafting. State Parks and National Forests offer walks through ferns, flowers, rhododendron and mountain laurel. Area golf courses skirt both mountains and streams.
For the history buff, Lewisburg offers sites associated with both the Revolutionary and Civil wars. Gracious homes, spanning the years with varied architecture of soft red brick or frame, many with large porches reminiscent of a more leisurely life, can be seen by walking along many of the tree-lined streets.
North House Museum exhibits artifacts telling the stories of people who made Lewisburg’s history. The Old Stone Church, one of the earliest buildings and still in use, is surrounded by pioneers’ graves, many bearing names still associated with the area.
The center of town, anchored by the County Court House which dates to 1837, has fine shopping which includes antiques, crafts, old and new books, fine clothing, health foods and bakeries, most located within a four block area.
The Greenbrier Valley is one of the most culturally alive areas of West Virginia. While on vacation, you may wish to attend a musical performance at one of the three surviving Carnegie Halls in the United States. The Greenbrier Valley Theatre is West Virginia’s only year round professional theater.
