Relive the Victorian era in the small town of Bramwell. At one time, this charming town was home to the most millionaires per capita in the country, all coal barons who made their fortune from nearby mines.
Sprawling estates with stained glass windows, wrap-around porches, copper roofs and intricate woodwork and welcome visitors along Millionaire Row. Walk down the brick street and gaze up at the Phoebe Goodwill mansion on the rolling hill. If you think the outside is elegant, imagine the spacious 3rd floor ballroom!
The old bank on the corner was one of the most wealthiest banks in the world!
Once you finished your walking tour, stop into the Corner Shop on Main Street. Known for their milkshakes and burgers, this restaurant was named one of the 101 most unique places to dine in West Virginia. The antique soda fountain pours old-fashioned drinks and treats in the town’s former drugstore. The Bramwell Main Street Eatery is just a few doors down, and has buffet-style meals for the entire family.
End your day at the reconstructed Bramwell Depot museum and gift shop to learn about the millionaires, mines and more.
