Watch out Fayetteville, here we come!Super excited to announce that Lost Appalachia will be opening its flagship location in Fayetteville, WV in 2021! The day I launched Lost Appalachia at Bridge Day I knew Fayetteville would be the brand’s home one day. From the endless opportunities for outdoor adventure in the New River Gorge to the vibrant community to its rich history, the town represents so much of what’s important to Lost Appalachia. I couldn’t be happier to become a part of such an amazing little town. (And be closer to all the great food).You can follow along as we get things ready here and over on the new store page @LostAppalachiaWV – Give us a follow and be sure to tell your friends!.Can’t wait to see everyone!.Thanks Amy and Shawn for making me feel so welcome!

Fayetteville Mural Trail
For a small town Fayetteville is packed with big art. Walking through town there is never a lack of things to catch your eye. The energy and vibe of Fayetteville can be captured in little pops of art throughout town.
FHS Alumni Hosts Desk Scholarship
Looking for something to do? Fayetteville has just added something to help support local students in our area!As you may know, Fayetteville High School closed in 2019. The FHS Alumni Committee has for years offered scholarships to students graduating from Fayetteville High. Beginning last year the scholarships have continued to be awarded to Fayetteville students who attend Oak Hill or Midland Trail, and the Scholarship Committee plans to continue the tradition with your support.So what does that have to do with something fun to do in town?? Well, in an effort to continue to fund the scholarships, the committee reached out to local residents and artists for help. Old school desks, tables, and podiums were taken from the former elementary school and offered as a medium for artists to create something beautiful and unique… a piece of history from our school.As of today, these works of art are being distributed throughout our town at participating businesses, as notated on the attached map. Silent bids will be taken on each piece at each place of business up until September 21, 2020. All you need to do is go into the business, and place your silent bid in the envelope. We will be doing an announcement of winners following the conclusion of the silent bid auction. Keep an eye out on our page as we will feature each piece, give its location, and share a bio of the artist. Our hope is that not only will you be supporting future students through scholarships, but you will also be helping to support our local small businesses in Fayetteville. Plan a day, a weekend, or a month to visit our fabulous businesses. Give them your support and take a peek at the beautiful art that has been created to support our students. Help us continue to fund the scholarships for our future. May you have the highest bid!!!

Free Wifi The Grove
The Grove & Secret Sandwich Society are offering free wifi for the community. If you or someone you know does not have reliable access to the internet, you are more than welcome to use ours. “GROVEGUEST” is the name and no password is required. We have a WiFi repeater and the fastest speeds available from Suddenlink. THANKFULLY, we generally do not experience much difficulty or “drop outs” like many residents in our region with Suddenlink. During open hours you are welcome to grab a table (limited availability, with masks) inside or use our front porches. Before or after hours, you may still use our front porches or park on Keller Avenue within range and work from your vehicle! Every little bit helps and we’re all in this together, so please, feel free to partake of our WiFi if needed and let others know that may not see this! It’s not lost on us that making the offer online, is of course inherently flawed if you can’t see it! Sooo…let’s get the word out! #freewifi

Updated Restaurant & Retail List
We love our little slice of almost heaven and our community is what makes this place so special. Over the coming weeks and months, our favorite restaurants, shops, places to stay and places to play in our beloved town are going to see a decline in visitors. Our little town is dependent on tourism so we are especially going to take a hit. Our small businesses need us now more than ever. #Fayettevillewvstrong is a movement to support our town and community.
You can help in lots of ways: ordering food to go, shopping online, tipping well, buy a gift card, leave a positive review, or just spread the word about your favorite small business and the #fayettevillewvstrong campaign. We are an outdoorsy close-knit town and we will be utilizing our strengths. You will see more businesses utilizing outdoor spaces. Please be patient with us as we navigate new changes and try to keep each other safe.
