Lowell, West Virginia
In 1871 or 1872, brothers A.C. and E.P. Lowe built a hotel near Graham's settlement near the site of the fort and launched a mercantile business. The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway was completed through Lowell in 1878. Two national historic landmarks are located at Lowell -- the home of Graham House and the Samuel Gwinn Plantation. The Graham House is open to the public as a museum; the Gwinn Plantation is a private residence. Motorists who intend to explore Lowell on both sides of the river must drive two miles north to the bridge over the Greenbrier at Pence Springs, WV. The summits of Wind Creek Mountain rise to the south of the Greenbrier River at Lowell.
