Being Home in Grantsville

The Little Kanawha River tucks Grantsville into mountainous wrinkles. You have no choice but drive meandering roads to get to town. When you're there, make the choice to accept the low cell service, short commute time, crisp and clean air, and attentive and engaging neighbors. Base yourself in this localized community.
