HARDY COUNTY Wherein o River Loses Itself Hardy County boasts of one of the country's most unusual "natural wonders": Lost River disappears under a moun- tain near Wardensville and emerges two and one half miles below as Cacapon River! Nearby is Lost River State Park, a recreational area built around the historical Lee Cabin, built by Henry (Light Horse Harry) Lee, father of Gem Robert E. Lee. The county was dotted with pioneer forts and blockhotmes, originally built against Indian forays. Famous fishing streams and deer and small game abound throughout the county. Topographically, Hardy is a series of mountains, up to 3,000 feet, and broad valleys. Broiler production, farming, lumbering, wood products and tannery operations form its economic base. Moorefield, the county seat, and where are found many fineold homes, was chartered as early as 1777. In Hardy County and throughout We~t Virginia, the Brewers Foundation works constantly to assure the sale of beer and ale under pleasant, orderly conditions. Be- lieving that strict law enforcement serves the best in- terests of the people,~ the Foundation stresses close co-operation with the Armed Forces, law enforcement and governing officials in its continuing "self-regals. tion" program.
