By Staff | Oct 5, 2012

An internet contest is calling for individuals to vote in their ‘Coolest Small Town.’ Shepherdstown has made the list of possibilities and locals are urging everyone to log in and vote. More information on the contest can be found at www.budgettravel.com/contest/coolest-small-towns-21013nominations.

One comment on the Shepherdstown voter site said: “West Virginia’s oldest town is known for its thriving arts scene headlined by the annual Contemporary American Theater Festival (CATF). CATF produces America’s newest plays by up and coming nationally known playwrights. With an equity cast and professional designers, the festival has garnered a national reputation for new play development. But there is more to Shepherdstown than just CATF; the town is full of artsy types as well as independent restaurants and shops all set among the picturesque colonial buildings of German Street, the town’s main drag and nestled on the banks of the Potomac River. Shepherdstown is also home to the annual Freedom’s Run (started by a barefoot running pioneer) marathon through several national parks. And is also known for Shepherd University, making it small but lively college town.
