The Greenbrier


History of the Greenbrier

Located amid the breathtaking mountains of West Virginia, The Greenbrier is a National Historic Landmark and an awardwinning resort that has been welcoming guests from around the world since 1778. The natural mineral springs that drew our first guests nearly 250 years ago continue to lure visitors to our 11,000-acre luxury retreat today. With a guest list that includes 28 United States presidents, America’s Resort has long been a favorite destination of royalty, celebrities and business leaders. The Greenbrier served as a WWII military hospital that admitted 24,148 patients, and at the height of the Cold War a top secret U.S. government relocation facility for Congress was built on property – securing The Greenbrier’s place in history.
