Summers County – the railroad boom of the early 20th century helped to build this county and there is lots of history here! Scenically placed between the beautiful Greenbrier and New River Valleys you have outstanding state parks such as Pipestem (along border of Summers and Mercer Counties) and large, beautiful mountain Lakes like Bluestone.
Hinton is the county seat and is in revitalization constantly. Wonderful examples of Victorian architecture are in the The Hinton Historic District. Shops, dining establishments, businesses, and organizations are located in easy walking distance of one another within the Hinton Historic District.
