Holly River State Park – Hacker Valley WV

Description

The park encompasses over 10,000 acres in Webster County, West Virginia. The first mention of the “Laurel Fork” project was on October 18th, 1935 in the Webster Republican newspaper (Anderson, p. 31). The Works Progress Administration did most of the construction on site. In total, the original park included 9 cabins, a picnic area, a playground, two tennis courts, a cover pavilion, a restaurant, and a swimming pool (Anderson, p. 79). The park continues to operate to this day, now called “Holly River State Park”.
