If anyone has any material/links on West Virginian fossils and/or localities feel free to add to this page- I am going to continue to gather up resources on the state and post on here.

<> http://donaldkenney.x10.mx/STATES/WV.HTM - Largest collection of localities for WV I've seen to date, however, some that are listed are just locations that have only been known to contain one fossil.

Looking on the western end of West Virginia, but everything is useful. (Links will be credited.)

 

Thanks.

Thanks Joe, just after posting this I found your library which contained WV localities basically making this post irrelevant :D (I'm new to this site), Thanks for the links anyway! I'll use them for my own study.

I'd highly suggest finding a copy of Fossil Collecting in the Mid-Atlantic States by Jasper Burns. It's full of sites, pictures of fossils, and descriptions of the local formations.

 

Just be aware that Route-48 is actually the modern Interstate-68 (I found the hard way...) and some sites (like Swatara Gap) are also non-existent. From what I've gathered most are still around, though.

I actually have that book! That's what kicked off the whole fossil hunting obsession for me.

Looks like a nicely-done site.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
