West "By God" Virginia in Richwood
Welcome to the Original Richwooders Web Site
The Richwooders Web Site is my original and personal reflection on Richwood WV itself; many people might wonder Why? The key to this mystery is to keep my mind thinking, creating, learning, and having fun all at the same time and there is no limit to what you can do! The site was going to be about the Golden Age of Richwooders - fifties and sixties stuff. Since then, Richwooders kind of taken on a new life of it's own - especially the photo gallery, just a bunch of random images of Richwood WV which many Richwooders have always been fond of. The gallery is an ongoing, random collection of images from Richwood "the friendly, folksy town of the 19th-century" and the area surrounding Nicholas County, West Virginia, including the localities of LaFrank, Fenwick, Saxman, Leivasy, Craigsville, Tioga, Nettie, Holcomb, Cottle and Hominy Falls, updated on a random basis.
This site has directed the attention toward a user-friendly site, with the attention toward.
To spread awareness of Richwood to former Richwooders and new visitors
To provide links and information on Richwood W. Va. itself
Give former Richwooders a sense of pride where they came from and memories of a much simpler life.
But most importantly to keep the spirit of Richwood W. Va. alive and kicking!
It is not just another Richwood W. Va. site on search engines and there is no age limit to having fun viewing a part of past history. Select a category or link to view on the far left of the screen. As a result, comprehensive viewing of this site requires more than simply glance through quickly. I hope you enjoy this site, and are able to take away some new and old memories of Richwood West Virginia.
All the graphics on this original Richwooders web site have been a result of my own efforts. The Richwooders images (gallery, thumbs etc) where appropriate, I have acknowledged the source of material and pictures and gave credit where it is due

And who am I? Just an old West Virginia hillbilly with a bit of chauvinist. I don't watch much TV, and I don't play video games and this is much more creative than watching TV or playing computer video games! Hope you enjoy the site.
