Iconic Coopers Rock Gateway Rebuilt After 70 Years
21 Jan 2022
Visitors heading to Coopers Rock State Forest will now be greeted by a piece of history. A replica of the Coopers Rock entryway that greeted visitors in the 1940s and 50s now marks the entrance to the state forest.
The Coopers Rock Foundation, the West Virginia Division of Forestry and the West Virginia State Parks System have been working on the ‘Gateway Project’ since around Nov. 2021, and the foundation announced on Tuesday that the project is finally complete.
