Purpose of Art's List

Art's List is about a particular area of West Virginia, West Virginia State Route 87, often referred to as 87 and the "hills and hollers" on either side of 87.  Is located in Mason and Jackson Counties. This Web Site explores the people who settled this area. It is my belief that this area in West Virginia was and is unique in its culture and the diversity of its people. They were rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief, they came over on the Mayflower, signed the US Constitution, fought in the wars to preserve their beliefs and our freedoms. Where did our ancestors come from? Where did their descendents go? This Web Site offers possible answers to some of those questions. I started with my name and like a pebble dropped in a pond the circles have grown larger and larger. The more I pull the string the more string there is to pull.
