West Virginia: Lakes Region
Water - sparkling, shining and tumbling over rocks - will lure you to the Mountain Lakes region and lull you into a dreamy serenity. It's a peaceful place of forested mountains, lakes, rivers and streams, clear skies and starry mountain nights.
Stonewall Jackson Lake
Waiting within the peaceful present are mementos of harsher times. The Mountain Lakes region is rich in Civil War history at Stonewall Jackson's boyhood home, Bulltown and Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park.
The shopping is of the old-fashioned variety in the Mountain Lakes. Wander and look: you'll uncover handcrafts and antiques at festivals, on farms and in tiny business districts.
The great outdoors offers up whitewater, boating, fishing, hunting and family activities. Most of all, it offers itself - serene, unchanged and majestic, ready to enjoy.
Although born in nearby Clarksburg, Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson grew up at Jackson's Mill, his family's ancestral home north of Weston.
