Welcome to Arches ...
Although we found mention of Arches during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Arches was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Arches was located in Wetzel County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Arches to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Arches - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Arches, please Contact Us.
