Gov. Jim Justice on Wednesday joined West Virginia Department of Tourism Secretary Chelsea Ruby, West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Director Brett McMillion, West Virginia State Parks leaders and other local officials at Pipestem Resort State Park for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of over $8 million in upgrades.
“The renovations at Pipestem are incredible. I congratulate everyone who played a part in making all of these improvements possible,” Justice said. “Just look at this place right here. I don’t care where you go in this country, it doesn’t get any better than right here where we’re at right now.
“We’ve always known how good we are. But the outside world didn’t buy it. Someway, somehow, we had to change our image in West Virginia. Through projects like this, it’s working.”
