Extra, West Virginia
Extra, in northern Putnam County, is a hamlet located along Eighteen Mile Creek, a tributary of the Kanawha River. Grandview Ridge Road (CR-21), traveling from the south, intersects Eighteen Mile Creek Road (CR-14) at Extra (map). The community may have been established as a timber-milling center in the late 1800s, though today it is no more than a crossroads among low hills and cornfields.
