The People & History
South Charleston is located in Kanawha County and lies across the Kanawha River from the State Capital in Charleston. A couple of famous people you may know were born in this suburban city. Former NFL player Carl Lee was born and raised here, while country singer-songwriter Kathy Mattea was born at Thomas Memorial Hospital in South Charleston. Many people don’t know that the hospital was named after the WWII Medal of Honor recipient Herbert J. Thomas Jr.
One place to visit if you are ever in this area is Criel Mound. The Adena culture, around 250-150 BC, built this mound. South Charleston has many parlors and shopping centers, making it a wonderful place to live and visit. First Response Restoration enjoys performing jobs in this area because of the great people and history you can find here. If you live in Charleston and are looking to have work done on your home, give First Response Restoration a call.
In the photo to the right, you can see our current favorite outdoor living renovation. The existing deck deteriorated, and the homeowners decided the back yard was due for an update. We installed new pavers, railing, decking, and a gazebo with a ceiling fan. The family can now spend their days and evenings relaxing by the pool and enjoying quality time together. We can help you achieve your dream outdoor living space as well. We are just a call away.
