White Sulphur Springs
Camp Penny, home of Penny Fioravante, was once known c. 1925 until integration as the Bethune School for the African American children of White Sulphur Springs. It is the school that Katherine Coleman Johnson (Hidden Figures) attended as a child. Although this former school has been configured into an eclectic, art-filled cottage home, reminders of the past can still be seen. A former student will be one of the docents.
When visiting the homes in White Sulphur Springs, we hope you take the opportunity to visit the downtown and witness the renewal after the devastating 2016 flood. Drive by Hope Village to see the town’s newly constructed neighborhood. Stop for a rest at the beautiful Brad Paisley Park and walk the connected paths to Nicely Park and Old Mill Park, all a memorial to loved ones lost.
