POINT PLEASANT — Point Pleasant will be featured in one of West Virginia’s premiere magazines which is sold in 25 states as well as Canada and celebrates life in the Mountain State.
On Friday, Laura Rote, managing editor and Elizabeth Roth, photographer, for WV Living Magazine, were being given the grand tour of downtown Point Pleasant by Main Street Point Pleasant Director Charles Humphreys. Life in downtown Point Pleasant will be featured in the magazine’s Fall 2014 edition - Rote and Roth were in town to get seasonal photos well in advance of the issue.
Rote said the fall issue is known as a premiere, double issue and the story on Point Pleasant will be a feature-style article in nature, showcasing life, culture and recreation in the fall months.
While walking along their tour, both women said they were especially impressed with Riverfront Park as well as the Point Pleasant River Museum, among other destinations.
“Amazing,” Humphreys said about the opportunity the feature could bring Point Pleasant. “This will be amazing in terms of getting the word out about the community.”
