"Kenova.... first stop in West Virginia" Kenova by davecallahan

Kenova Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 15 photos

Kenova is residence for 3500 people with a fairly low household income of $25000. It is a safe place to live with only one violent crime in 6 years.
Car break-ins are the biggest crimes (about 15 a year). Petty theft (shop-lifting) is prevalent but not very costly for the community. Weather-wise, there was only one critical tornado that hit this area and that was back in 1965. Seasonal floods sometimes cause problems for the town but nothing dangerous or life-threatening.

the movie "We Are Marshall" is a dramatic renenactment of a plane crash (flight 932) near Kenova
