West Virginia - Weston


Heading south on Main Street (US Route 19) toward downtown Weston.

Now downtown, 2nd Street looking east at Center Avenue.

The 1930 Citizen's Bank building sits at Main Avenue and 2nd Street, at the corner of all three US Highways in town (19, 33, 119). It is 50 feet tall but only one story, built solidly out of limestone on the outside and marble on the inside. As you might imagine, it was commissioned and mostly constructed before the Great Depression set in.

Weston State Hospital is the longest hand-cut stone building in the Western Hemisphere. I'd love to see what the Eastern Hemisphere has to offer. It took me four different photos to be able to make this. Click for a closeup and prepare to scroll to the right.
