True, West Virginia
According to historian James H. Miller, author of "History of Summers County, West Virginia" (1908), the True post office was named by Larkin McDowell Meador, who, in a letter presenting his petition to establish the post office, certified at the end of this correspondence that: "Now this is true." The community is bounded on the north by Bluestone State Park and on the west by the Bluestone National Scenic River.
