Ice Mountain: Rediscovering a Hampshire County Hidden Gem

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, in Hampshire County West Virginia, there is a small mountain ridge called Ice Mountain. Historical records suggest that, years ago, ice could be found here, even in the heat of summer. Inside Appalachia producer Roxy Todd recently visited Ice Mountain to find out if ice could still be spotted, and to check out the rare plant species that have existed here since the last ice age.

Also, U.S. Congressman Evan Jenkins visited Thomas Memorial Hospital in South Charleston Monday to hold a round table with local experts about how best to address addiction and neonatal abstinence syndrome.
