Top 10 Reasons to love Ravenswood, WV (when you didn't think there was ONE)

1) Flinn Field on a cool September night.

2) The first sugar cookie sno cone of the season.

3) Picnics at the River Front Park as the sun sets on the Ohio River

4) Evening walks in town

5) 10 second stoplight(s)

6) Grocery shopping is a social event

7) Everyone always waves

8) There is pride in the history of our town

9) There is a sense of community when someone faces a hardship

10) The fact that the people in Ravenswood will always be like family



Let’s face it, no matter how old you get, there will always be pleasure in putting on your red and black and supporting our Red Devils at Flinn Field. The sunsets at the river front park will never get old, and snobiz is a good addition to any evening. Even if we claim to hate it, being able to turn the monotony of grocery shopping into a social event is always exciting, and it is guaranteed that the moment that you walk into Foodfair, you will see at least three people that you know. Small towns breed friendly people, and unlike the bigger cities, everyone will always wave and smile. The town comes together during the hard times, and maybe that is the most important thing of all. You always hear that people can’t wait to leave. They think that anywhere will be better than a town of 4,000 people with a handful of fast food restaurants and a broken stoplight. However, people come back. They crave a place that is familiar, and they find it in Ravenswood.
