THE BOONE COUNTY COURTHOUSE in Madison, one of the most beautiful of the state's 55 county courthouses, is an excellent example of classical Renaissance architecture featuring Corinthian columns and Roman keystone windows of Indiana limestone. Constructed in the early 1920's the Boone County Courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
BREATHTAKING SCENERY--Boone County's beautiful scenery is second to none. The picturesque mountains are truly a sight to behold, especially during Autumn when Mother Nature shows off her true colors. These photographs were taken on Drawdy and Bolt Mountain.
WATERWAYS PARK--For family fun at its best, spend a day or more at WaterWays. West Virginia's Water Park. Located along Corridor G at Julian, Boone County's top recreational facility features two giant downhill water sides, a lazy river, children's pool, junior olympic size pool, picnic facilities, miniature golf and go-carts. The water park is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
COAL MINERS STATUE on the courthouse lawn honors Boone County coal miners, past, present, and future. Coal mining is the backbone of the county's economy.
Southern West Virginia Community College and the Boone County Career Center and Vocational Technical School provide access to higher education by offering a comprehensive program of both technical and general education to students in the region. Located just off Corridor 'G (US 119) near Danville, this model facility is the first of its kind in the state to have a college and technical school on the same campus. This joint facility will enrich the educational and cultural offerings available in southern West Virginia.
