|Long-gone trips on the Little Kanawha
Enjoyed the story in the Hur Hearld about Creston. When I was five
years old my mother and I rode a paddle boat on our way to Parkersburg from
Grantsville. We ate lunch at Creston.
I got very excited as there was a
boat named Juanita docked there. Many years later I saw the Juanita at
Charleston at the stern wheel regatta.
I was told it was the same boat, just
overhauled. I think we got off the boat at Mineral Wells, walked a ways down a
railroad track, caught a bus into Parkersburg, took a train to Clarksburg, changed
to a street car to Fairmont, where Uncle Charley picked us up in his car
around midnight and took us on to Morgantown to my grandmother's house.
for a trip?
Thanks again for the story.
