MOUNTAIN CULTURE
     West Virginia is a border state, in many senses of the phrase - a melting pot of North and South, East and West, industrial development and agrarian lifestyles, ancient folkways and technological wonders.
     The centuries have brought waves of different peoples. Native Americans used these hills as a hunting ground. Antebellum spa visitors flocked to the mineral springs that still bubble in the mountains. Union and Confederate armies fought fierce battles here. A rich diversity of immigrants flowed into West Virginia to work in its oil and gas, timber, coal, railroad and glass industries. Each of these cultures influenced the people who call West Virginia home.
