April Wonderful West Virginia Magazine Features:
Historic Nuttallburg, Pretty Penny Café, Centennial Golden Trout and Talkin’ Turkey

            SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The April 2013 issue of Wonderful West Virginia, now on sale, celebrates 50 years of the famous centennial golden trout, along with articles and photos about some of the most interesting people and places in the Mountain State. The cover is a striking close-up of a group of the popular golden trout that is treasured by anglers from across the nation.

Hiking Historic Nuttallburg

            Though left for years to fade into the annals of the New River Gorge, this once-bustling coal town has come alive again, thanks to a major project undertaken by the National Park Service.

A Neighborly Place: The Pretty Penny Café

            There’s a place in the heart of Hillsboro where everybody knows your name. Or if they don’t they will soon. Whether you drop in for a good meal, a movie, or a town meeting, you’re never a stranger in the Pretty Penny Café.

Centennial Golden Trout Turns 50

            A half a century ago, this striking fish made quite a splash when it was introduced to West Virginia waters in celebration of the state’s 100th anniversary. Today it remains a living symbol of that historic milestone.

Talkin’ Turkey

            We’re talkin’ a willingness to endure long waits and to be outfoxed time and time again by the king of game birds, until your golden moment of victory arrives. This is the mark of a true turkey hunter.
