All about Lewisburg, West Virginia

Lewisburg

Shopping, dining, theater and history. It’s all there in historic Lewisburg, a charming town set at the crossroads of the Midland Trail (U.S. 60) and U.S. 219. Named for surveyor Andrew Lewis, the area was the site of several battles during Lord Dunmore’s War, the 1774 conflict between the Colony of Virginia and Shawnee and Mingo American Indian nations. Later the town would play an important role during the Civil War, when several of its buildings were commandeered as hospitals and barracks by both Union and Confederate forces.

Today, historic downtown Lewisburg is one of the state’s most walkable cities, with dozens of boutique shops, antique stores and art galleries lining its picturesque main street. Dining options range from the upscale cuisine of the Stardust Café and The French Goat to the casual fare of The Asylum and The Wild Bean. Top off your day with a live performance at Carnegie Hall or one of several other historic theaters set in this cultural hub of the Greenbrier Valley.
