Alderson Real Estate
Founded in 1871, Alderson is much like taking a step back into time. Lying along the banks of the pristine Greenbrier River, this town with a population of just over 1,000 is another reason West Virginia’s motto is “Almost Heaven”.
Historic homes, riverfront property and sprawling farmland compliment the many natural springs the Greenbrier Valley has become famous for. Here community and family are as important as Alderson’s history—and history is everywhere.
Alderson is designated as a National Register of Historic Places district with 165 structures of historic and architectural significance. The district includes Greek Revival, Federal, Queen Anne and Victorian styled homes which are maintained with the respect and awe for what founders and settlers created amongst the natural beauty of Greenbrier County. The historic district now protects commercial and residential streets running beside the Greenbrier River on both banks. The Alderson Memorial Pedestrian Bridge, built in 1913, was restored and links the two counties and one town together. A restored 1896 C&O Railroad Depot now features a seasonal museum and gift shop.
Quiet and peaceful, residents of Alderson enjoy a variety of outdoor adventures afforded by its nearby location to white water rafting, amazing fishing, hiking, biking and much more. Citizens in Alderson also know how to throw one big celebration. For a week in July, Alderson celebrates its annual 4th of July Festival, featuring great food, family entertainment and terrific fireworks.
Alderson real estate is among the most desirable in the Mountain State due to its location among West Virginia’s stunning natural beauty and easy access to nearby cities such as Lewisburg and Beckley. Property values continue to increase as a result of the growing tourism industry in the Greenbrier Valley.
