Hailing from a region of rich history, Shaw-Mi-Del-Eca was named after four Native American tribes that inhabited the area prior to the nineteenth century: Shawnee, Miami, Delaware, and Seneca. Initially, Shaw-Mi-Del-Eca Village was known as Camp Shaw-Mi-Del-Eca and was operated as a summer camp for boys from 1929 through 1971 by the Greenbrier Military School in Lewisburg, West Virginia, in a non-military manner. After the closure of the Greenbrier Military School in 1972, the camp was in operation as a summer camp for boys and girls until 1978 when it was permanently closed.
Residents of Shaw-Mi-Del-Eca Village enjoy serene, beautiful surroundings and outdoor recreational activities inside the privacy and safety of a gated community.
Historic Greenbrier County:
Lewisburg, which is the Greenbrier County seat, was voted the Coolest Small Town in America in 2011, combining the warmth of a close community with the sophistication of more urban locations. The thriving downtown historic district offers year-round live productions presented at the State Professional Theatre of WV, Carnegie Hall, distinctive dining venues, antique shops, award-winning galleries/boutiques, and two summer-season farmers markets. Greenbrier Valley Medical Center is a modern hospital and all attendant medical facilities, along with the many big box stores.
Lewisburg is home to the WV Osteopathic Medical School (800 students) and the New River Community and Technical College. The area is a strong economic generator with a solid workforce employed in county/state government, tourism, hospitality, medical, education, retail, construction, wood products, mining and agriculture.
The world-renowned Greenbrier Resort, with 800 rooms and 1600 employees, is located nearby in the sleepy little town of White Sulphur Springs. The 4-Star resort has a subterranean casino and is home to the PGA tour, the Greenbrier Classic. Several other area golf courses are available in the area including Oakhurst Links, Americas first golf course, where guests play using old style hickory-handled clubs and ground-burrowing golf balls!
The Greenbrier County Airport with WVs longest runway provides daily flights to Atlanta and Washington DC. A picturesque train ride from White Sulphur Springs connects the area to DC, Phili, Chicago, and many other locations. By car, DC is 4 hours away and Charlotte is only 4.
The Greenbrier River is 173 miles long is the last free flowing river east of the Mississippi. It is an excellent river to float or canoe and is well known for its large and small mouth bass fishing. It is the gateway to water recreation and fun as it is at most times lazy and easy to navigate.
The Greenbrier River is formed by the confluence of the East Fork Greenbrier River and the West Fork Greenbrier River in the town of Durbin, West Virginia. From Durbin the Greenbrier River flows southwesterly through Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Monroe, and Summers Counties. It flows through several communities including Cass, Marlinton, Hillsboro, Ronceverte, Fort Spring, Alderson, and Hinton. The Greenbrier River joins the New River in the town of Hinton, West Virginia.
