We are a thriving community nestled within Appalachia. Walk through our quiet downtown filled with quaint, locally owned stores, and you can smell the mom-and-pop restaurants cooking everything from burgers and fries to specialty ice-cream. Residents walking their dogs stop to say hello and welcome you to their little slice of heaven. Even shop owners take the time to throw up a hand and issue a friendly greeting as you walk by. Our hometown boasts the unique charms of smaller towns; low crime, affordable cost of living, and good schools for your kids while still offering city amenities. Also, if you love the outdoors; hiking, skiing, boating, golfing and fishing is right in our backyard. Pay a visit to Gallia County, and you'll immediately feel at home.
