Allegheny Lodge Part 1

Updated: Oct 5


Looking out to the mountains

We had an opportunity to DJ a wedding at Allegheny Lodge in Minnehaha, WV. " Allegheny Lodge passed through the hands of several owners. Sometimes it was used as a private estate. Other owners operated it as a resort hotel. Famous visitors, including author Pearl S. Buck and Olympic gold medal skier Jean Claude Killy, were guests there. On October 17, 1983, the lodge building burned to the ground. The stone entryway is still standing." Nearly everything in West Virginia is beautiful. Gary and I, we come from Cleveland, OH and Ohio has its spots but not the entire state. West Virginia has the entire state.


We did our research and there is no wifi or cell service. There's a very good reason for this, it's near the observatory. Members of the wedding party told us that they use CDs for music and cell service works outside of the region.

Allegheny Lodge was breathtaking. There is no other word for it. In future posts, I'll talk more about it.

They say, a picture is worth 1,000 words so I will just leave it at that.
