Glen-Ferris is a small town located on the western bank of the Kanawha River in Fayette County, south-central West Virginia. It is approximately one mile south of the town of Gauley Bridge. The only highway linking Glen Ferris to the area is U.S. Route 60, also known as the Midland Trail. The village of Glen Ferris has an estimated population of 200 residents, with about 40 homes. The village is roughly a mile and a half in length. Glen Ferris is home to two churches and a railway owned by Norfolk Southern runs parallel to US Route 60 through the village. On the southern edge of Glen Ferris lies the Kanawha Falls public access fishing area that provides the best ground-level view of the Kanawha Falls on the west side of the river. The first permanent building to be constructed in the town was the Glen Ferris Inn (originally a private residence) which was built in 1810. In 1996, the inn was purchased from Elkem Metals by a local family, who added a glass walled dining room that overlooks the Kanawha Falls. It also continues to operate as a hotel. On the east bank of the river, across from the inn, lay the remnants of Camp Reynolds, a Union Army camp and gun embankment used in the Civil War.

Glen Ferris Weather & Climate

South-Central West Virginia is dominated by a humid continental climate, due to its geographical location in the higher elevations. Summers are very warm and humid and winters are cold and snowy. The humid continental climate is marked by variable weather patterns and a large seasonal temperature variance. Summers are often warm and humid with frequent thunderstorms and winters can be very cold with frequent snowfall and persistent snow cover. The seasonal temperature variance is typically 25-35C (45-63F) and increases as one moves further inland. Places with at least four months of average daily temperatures above 10C (50F) and at least one month below 0 C (32F) or -3 C (26F) depending on source, and which do not meet the criteria for an arid or semiarid climate, are classified as humid continental.
