Find scratch-made foods, outdoor and indoor fun, and a really comfortable stay.
The village of Reedsville lies a half-hour’s drive southeast of Morgantown on the Kingwood Pike. It was named for early-1800s settler James Reed, and its population today of 500-some is about as high as it’s ever been. Situated at a crossroads, Reedsville offers plenty to love for a day trip or an overnight getaway.
- Grab lunch at Old School Pizzeria in the 1912 Reedsville School building, where pizzas, hoagies, pepperoni rolls, and more are made from scratch by family tradition.
- In season, head east to take the kids to see the animals at Hovatter’s Wildlife Zoo.
- Or if it’s an indoors sort of day, go north to Luigi’s Sports Center for bowling, arcade games, and more.
- Be sure to drive the mile or two south to visit the 1930s New Deal community of Arthurdale.
- At the crossroads in the center of it all, make Modern Homestead Garden and Trellis Cafe your home base: for coffee and tea drinks, a light meal, and gifts and live plants from the greenhouse.
If you can make an overnight of it, stay over at Modern Homestead’s charming guesthouse—one more reason to love Reedsville.
