Red Sulphur Springs Time Capsule House

A few weeks ago, we visited the old Jim Dunlap house in Indian Creek, Red Sulphur Springs, Monroe County, WV. The property is essentially an 1830s-40s time capsule. It’s never had indoor plumbing, and retains all of its original woodwork and paint. You’d never know it was there, hidden up an overgrown farm road, located on a knoll overlooking Indian Creek near its mouth at the New River. Nearby is an old cemetery with some interesting burials of notable people who died while vacationing at the nearby Red Sulphur Springs resort, circa 1830s through the Civil War. The property is for sale, with some acreage. Hopefully someone saves this beautiful property.

Byrnside’s Fort Open House and the Farmer’s Day Parade 2022

We had great turnout at our first open house at Byrnside’s Fort on Friday evening, June 3, Farmer’s Day weekend 2022 here in Union, West Virginia. Here’s also a couple pics of the Farmer’s Day parade on Saturday was so long, it reportedly took an hour and a half to finish. I was limited to watching it via drone however, since I had chicken wings on the grill. The little town of Union hosts thousands of people each year for this little celebration of rural life. Even for the open house on Friday evening, so many people turned out that I didn’t even get a chance to speak with everyone. We learned some great ideas for the next open house, which we’ll try to get scheduled soon. Thanks everyone for showing up, as well as for the numerous folks who reached out to send regrets. Here are a few pics.
