Back in the day, 4th of July was a stay-at-home holiday. Most families did not travel. That’s why we think of the hometown, American-feel Main Street parade when we think of July 4th. All those cliches are true, and give us a warm and fuzzy feeling about our nation’s birthday celebration.

We have all that in Fayetteville, WV.
Bring Grama and the kids and do some recreation, some relaxing and some cabining.
We have all that at Opossum Creek.
