Thomas, Tucker County, West Virginia is located in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains. The town of Thomas has a story to tell. It’s a story of immigration, industry, and community … truly the American story. The first settler (Jacob C. Pase) arrived with his family in the fall of 1880 and within the following years more families came to settle in the forest. It was dramatically noted then that “Thomas was surrounded by a howling wilderness of pine and laurel, and wild beasts could be seen and killed from the very house doors” Thomas, West Virginia was listed on the National Register of Historic Place in 1998.
