RICHWOOD

I

n 1901, the town
named Cherry Tree
Bottoms became the
City of Richwood. The
town grew and became a
thriving area with growing businesses such as the
Cherry River Boom and
Lumber Company, a tannery, a paper mill and the
world's largest clothespin
factory. Years later, the
Cherry River Boom and
Lumber Company became
Collins Hardwood and the
wood tradition continues
with two hardwood mills
turning out over two million board feet of lumber
per year.
Richwood has a
unique location with
the Cherry River run-

ning through it and the
Monongahela National
Forest in its backyard.
The Cherry River connects with the Cranberry and Williams
Rivers and these rivers,
collectively, are known
for their excellent trout
fishing. There are also
many forest hiking trails
surrounding the town
and the Cranberry TriRivers Rail Trail running
through town. These
trails, along with the
New River Gorge Bike
Trail Alliance, provide
a fantastic network of
trails for bike riding as
well. Summit Lake is a
must if you are looking
for a great place to relax,

camp, hike or fish. Continue east on U.S. 39 and
discover nature's beauty
at its best in the Monongahela National Forest.
Located on the
Cranberry River in the
Monongahela National
Forest, Camp Splinter
was founded in 1940.
Over the years it has
become a favorite spot of
not only Scouts, but fishermen, families and those
who just want to get away
from it all. To reach the
Camp, you must cross a
footbridge or ford a small
stream, and don't forget
your fishing pole and
swimsuit. Contact the
Richwood Area Chamber
for rentals.
