"Where I Grew Up: Culloden, WV"
I moved to Culloden, WV when I was 5 years old in 1978. There were two neighborhood streets there at that time and everyone knew everyone else. In a way, it is still like that there; however, there are more neighborhoods now and thus more people to know. There is one grocery store, Culloden Independent Supermarket, one pizza joint, Giovanni's (GREAT by the way), and a Family Dollar. Drive a little ways and you have access to the towns of Hurricane and Milton, which offer much more in the way of restaurants and retail. Depending on which side of Virginia Avenue you live on, your kids will either go to Putnam County or Cabell County schools. Both systems are good. I would recommend Culloden to families who want to be close to larger towns but not in one. Culloden is a little bit country, and that was great for my family. I no longer live there (left in 1991), but have visited recently. The changes are many but you just do not notice them. Its a great little town.
