Lewisburg West Virginia River Running Guide

Weather for Lewisburg West Virginia Forecast

Lewisburg, nestled in the heart of the Greenbrier Valley, is the county seat and offers visitors a unique shopping experience, elegant (or casual) dining, and an opportunity to explore its history. In addition, a wide array of outdoor adventures awaits-hiking, biking, camping, caving, canoeing, fishing and even cross-country skiing!

Set amid the Allegheny Mountains, in an area rich in history and natural beauty, Lewisburg beckons to the traveler seeking something other than patented tourist attractions. We are the 221-year-old town with many 18th and 19th-century buildings, where the steeple clock still tolls the hour and the church bells ring out on Sunday mornings. Old structures, converted to new purposes, are still in use, and antebellum homes (often remaining in the same families for generations) are still occupied. There is a comfortable relationship between past and present, and the town has followed a pattern of natural continuity and vitality rather than one of contrived restoration. In 1978, a 236-acre area in the heart of Lewisburg was designated a National Register Historic District.

Within five minutes of the historic district travelers will come upon scenery thought only to exist in old language paintings. They will see narrow country roads winding through rolling farmlands, 19th-century farmhouses and manor houses, and shaded ponds tucked away into hollows. Springtime might present a vista of blooming orchards, frisky spring lambs, or a flock of Canada geese resting on a pond. Visitors may chance upon an old covered bridge over a sparkling creek, or find themselves surrounded by cool mountains, magnificent in autumn.

Other seasons offer the breathtaking beauty of waterfall frozen in place, or the splendor of the brightly colored birds that inhabit the area. All of these attractions combine to provide the visitor with a respite from a faster, more hectic world. A former mayor of Lewisburg was fond of saying, "Only two kinds of people ever leave Lewisburg - those who will return and those who wish they could." We sincerely hope you will enjoy your visit with us and that you will return.
