Porches, Lawn Ornaments, and Shrubs

Hinton, West Virginia

Hinton is situated on hills overlooking the New River, and the houses are packed closely together on the available land. Porches of all descriptions are a common feature, and lots of color is used around the town. A rainy February morning was a good time to explore. It's not just the drizzle and fog, water is a real theme. According to the stats, the town has an area of 3.03 square miles, and .81 is covered with water. On a satellite map, the river is wider than the built-up area of town along its east bank.
