The Greenbrier is one of this country's oldest resorts. Originally built for wealthy Southerners, the large complex of sulphur springs, luxury accommodations, formal gardens and golf courses is still a primary symbol of gracious southern entertaining. Known from its beginning as the "Queen of Southern Spas," this West Virginia watering place has always been fashionable and also has enjoyed a number of testimonials from physicians who thought the springs salubrious.


The Greenbrier is historically significant under Criteria A and C, with its period of significance ranging from 1820 to 1940.
