"GO HERD!!" Top 5 Page for this destination Huntington by shrimp56

Huntington Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 56 photos

Marshall University is the second state university after West Virginia University in Morgantown, but MU educates more West Virginians than WVU! Marshall is located in Huntington, West Virginia on the Ohio River. It is across the river from Ohio and Ashland, Kentucky is 13 miles downstream. No wonder it's called the "Tri-state" area! The page title refers to the nickname for the MU teams -- the "thundering herd". I worked at Marshall for several years in the 80s. These are a few pictures from a later visit.
The picture is of Old Main at the gateway to the campus.

New River Gorge Bridge

West Virginia is a beautiful state. The New River Gorge is supposed to be the oldest river in the US actually. Please see the tips for more information:)
