HUNTINGTON – With the help of its trusted readers, The Herald-Dispatch has compiled a list of 100 of the most iconic, influential and noteworthy things that make the Tri-State region what it is today.

A full-color, 106-page soft-cover book, “100 Things That Make the Tri-State Great” features things in the westernmost part of West Virginia, the southern tip of Ohio and the eastern border of Kentucky, which all make up the Tri-State area.

“The Tri-State has so many special places, institutions and events, and we thank our readers for their suggestions as we put together this new book,” said Ed Dawson, editor and publisher of The Herald-Dispatch. “And we want to thank the many sponsors who made it possible. I hope it is something readers can enjoy for years to come.”

Contributing to the book were advertising director Chuck Jessup, project coordinator Nicole Fields, graphic designer Scott Sword, senior account executive Brenda Renfroe and The Herald-Dispatch advertising sales team and photography staff.

“It’s a fun, feel-good book, and for many it will bring back a lot of fond memories,” Jessup said.

From longtime festivals and parades like the Ironton-Lawrence County Memorial Day Parade and ChiliFest to local landmarks like Carter Caves and Marshall University’s Old Main to eateries likes Jim’s Steak and Spaghetti House and Hillbilly Hot Dogs, the book highlights 100 of the region’s most notable things. Each page contains a picture of one of the 100 things along with a description of the place or event.

“A picture may say a thousand words, but a picture book can say a million,” Jessup said.

Copies of “100 Things That Make the Tri-State Great” can be picked up at The Herald-Dispatch, located at 946 5th Ave., Huntington, for $16.06 including tax. To have a book shipped, an extra $5.95 will be added to the price for shipping and handling.

The Herald-Dispatch has a limited number of books available.
