Pence-Springs is a small, unincorporated village, located in Summers County in southeast West Virginia. It sits along the Greenbrier River, east of the city of Hinton, at an elevation of 1,539 feet above sea level. Once a hot spot for travelers, Pence Springs is now a quiet community, home to a large, well known flea market. There is an actual spring in Pence Springs, and the water that flows from it won awards at the St Louis Expo in 1904. In 1918, the community built a 3-story brick hotel above the spring that attracted many tourists. The hotel was used as a state womens prison through the fifties, sixties and seventies. The old resort is currently being occupied by the Greenbrier Academy for Girls. Throughout the years several other hotels/hostels and boarding homes were built, none of which are no longer in use. Nearby, the historic city of Hinton has a downtown area that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. There are several museums in Hinton, including the Veterans Memorial Museum, Wood's Clock Museum, the Hinton Railroad Museum, and Kings Civil War Museum. Recreational activities near Pence Springs includes fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking and biking in Pipestem State Park, Bluestone State Park and the New River Gorge National River.
