Weather for Hinton West Virginia Forecast

Woven into the mountains of Appalachia, along the scenic New River in Southern West Virginia, is the quaint city of Hinton.

 

Hinton is a "Railroad Town", formed about 1871 with the tremendous building boom that occurred during the Gay '90s period from 1890 to1920.

 

The glory of the train days have come and gone, of course, leaving in its wake a community that today is rich in history and natural beauty. The downtown Historic District, officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 17, 1984, is an architectural gem waiting to be discovered.  Included in the Hinton Historic District are 200 buildings - churches, store fronts, and private residences displaying the varying architecture of American Gothic, Classical, High Victorian, American Four Square and Greek Revival styles.

 

Three major rivers carve their way toward Hinton.  The Greenbrier River and the Bluestone River join the New River in the community.
