FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – In the age of social distancing, a Charleston couple offers the perfect place to quarantine for creatives.
Years ago, Amy McLaughlin and her husband bought a historic Fayetteville building and renovated it into four vacation apartments called Lafayette Flats. The Court Street spot is a popular destination during the summer, but winter months are a bit slower. In an effort to bring more people to the area and support creative minds, McLaughlin started a creative residency.
“In the winter months, while there is still people that come here for die-hard activities like climbing and hiking, it’s much quieter,” said McLaughlin. “We thought that would be a very conducive environment to creative work. We decided, ‘hey, we have this beautiful space in this great town. Why not open that up for creatives to use?'”
Creative residency spots start in December and extend through March. For more information, click here.
