The US Corps of Engineers broke a long-standing tradition in naming the Summersville Dam. Tradition holds that the project will be named after the town nearest the site of construction, unless named for a person. However, the town of Summersville was not the one nearest the dam. The village of Gad was literally flooded at the opening of the reservoir. After briefly considering the name "Gad Dam," it was instead decided to name the project after the next nearest town – Summersville.

New crayfish discovered in West Virginia. The common name for a newly discovered crayfish species is the "Tug Valley crayfish," but West Virginians might find more amusing the creature's scientific name -- Cambarus hatfieldi, named for the feuding Hatfield family from that region.

    I was born and raised in Mineral County WV. many of the locals believe that bouldet was a carving from pre-historic peoples. The town I grew up in was called Elk Garden which was just a few miles from the lake. For me, the creepy think was that the town of Shaw (with its' small graveyard) is submerged under the water.
