Summer 1936-37 Anderson's Restaurant, Clarksburg WV

Taking the non-freeway route would have been the only option available in 1936-37 to travel from New Cumberland south to the Jackson's Mill camp.  According to Google Maps, traveling south through Wheeling and then on to Clarksburg would take 3 hours and 16 minutes today to drive the 126 miles.  Then another 20 miles on US-19 to reach Jackson's Mill after lunch at West Virginia's largest restaurant, Anderson's.

Jane & Rowena Herron drove the girls down and Rev. McDevitt the boys.

There is currently no restaurant in Clarksburg named Anderson's.
