"Was This Ever A Good Place To Build An Interstate"
When I was small, we used to travel between our home in Oklahoma and my Grandmother's home in West Virginia. We did so virtually every year for about 15 years. I don't believe we ever made it through Huntington without getting lost at least twice. These days there is an interstate, and you zoom through town.
Huntington is a city located in the U.S. State of West Virginia, along the Ohio River. Most of the city is in Cabell County, with a small part in Wayne County. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 51,475 (47,341 in Cabell County, 4,134 in Wayne County). The city was named for Collis P. Huntington, who founded it in 1870 as a headquarters for his Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. Huntington was incorporated in 1871, but its constituent city, Guyandotte, was first built in 1799. Huntington is the county seat of Cabell County.
"October 28th till Dec 3rd 2004"
It has been 5 years in my company and I have accumulate about 90 days of annual leave. Therefore, I decided to take one month break in US. It has been 3 years by now since I last saw my sister. She got married in US and now, she has two cute boys, Mark and Sean..
Marshall University is the second state university after West Virginia University in Morgantown, but MU educates more West Virginians than WVU! Marshall is located in Huntington, West Virginia on the Ohio River. It is across the river from Ohio and Ashland, Kentucky is 13 miles downstream. No wonder it's called the "Tri-state" area! The page title refers to the nickname for the MU teams -- the "thundering herd". I worked at Marshall for several years in the 80s. These are a few pictures from a later visit.

"New River Gorge Bridge"
West Virginia is a beautiful state. The New River Gorge is supposed to be the oldest river in the US actually. Please see the tips for more information:)
