Spruce is the site of a once bustling town, built in 1905 to meet the needs of the woodsmen working in the timber atop Cheat Mountain. It was at one time the highest town, and certainly one of the coldest as well, in the east, and was accessible only by train. Today there is little evidence left of the original wooden structures. The site is along the beautiful Shaver's Fork of the Cheat. The train ride round trip is 4 ½ hours and will stop at Whittaker Station.
