The Bulltown area has been busy through the centuries. It was once an Indian stronghold. Later, settlers came in, building a mill on nearby Falls Creek to grind their corn. One of the few passable roads of the 1800s, the Weston and Gauley Turnpike, went through here. This strategic road was the site of a Civil War battle. Today, Bulltown is the site of an Army Corps of Engineers’ campground that is adjacent to Burnsville Lake, which backs up a portion of the Little Kanawha River. The Bulltown Historical Area is near the campground and enhances the numerous recreational opportunities provided by the lake, such as boating, skiing, fishing, and swimming. The corps has done a fine job of making the most of this area, lying in the center of the Mountain State.
