Going down the back roads of WV you do find some cool things. And this Pavilion was all that was left after the Union soldiers came in and burned the resort down so that the Confederates couldn't benefit from it.
It sat in the middle of a cow pasture and no way to get close to it. I used the zoom on my camera to take the pictures.
As you can see its in fairly good shape for being over 150 years old.
Next on our adventure was to find the grave site of Randy's 6th Great Grandfather, Elder John Anderson. He was the founder of the town of Alderson and the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church. Cool little note about the church (which was founded on November 24th, 1781) was it was the first church founded on the west side of the Allegheny Mountains.
We did succeed in finding the final resting place for Mr. Alderson and his family.
