Kanawha Falls near Gauley Bridge IV-V+
Kanawa Falls is interesting. You can put in at the park below the falls and paddle back up to them. You will find that the falls are incredibly undercut. There is a crack you can paddle up into that adds a little excitement but be very very careful, you'll have to back out.

Summersville Lake Dam in West Virginia in December
This superb dam has been built across the Gauley River in Nicholas County, West Virginia near the New River Gorge area. It is 2,280 feet long and at 390 feet tall it is almost as high as a forty storey building.
It is what is described as a rock-fill dam and is the second largest of this type in the eastern United States. It took 12 million cubic yards of dirt and rock to construct it.
Built between 1960 and 1966 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers it was dedicated on its opening by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
The Corps of Engineers broke a long standing tradition in the naming of the dam. Until then any such project was named after the nearest town. In this instance the nearest town was a tiny hamlet that would actually be flooded once the reservoir was filled. Its name was Gad.
The Engineers briefly considered the name Gad Dam but eventually thought it inapropriate. So the dam is named after Summersville, the next nearest town
The reservoir formed by the dam was naturally called Summersville Lake. It covers 2,700 acres and has 60 miles of shoreline making it the largest lake in West Virginia.

Hawk's Nest Tunnel Tragedy 1930s
During the 1930s, hundreds of workers, from a tunnel construction project near the town of Gauley Bridge, West Virginia, died from silicosis, a lung disease caused by expsure to silica dust. The employer did not use methods known at the time to control the dealy dust. For the full story, read Martin Cherniack's book, The Hawk's Nest Incident: America's Worst Industrial Disaster. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1986. This clip was taken from the 1979 film, 'Can't Take No More, from Federal OSHA. The entire 27 minute film is available on my YouTube channel.
