The primary objective of this organization is to improve the community in which we live, in line with the people who reside here. Our purposes are twofold:
Provide an exceptional and diverse system of trails, open spaces, forest, recreational facilities, and other natural areas that are safe, accessible, and affordable to foster the needs of our community. Maintain and promote a natural and historic environment while providing educational opportunities throughout a leisure atmosphere which will enrich the health and quality of life for all ages & future generations in a safe & secure environment.
For generations the Sayre brothers were respected within the Letart community for farming and working their land all while preserving the land and nature. As a continuation of their legacy and commitment to their community during 1978 they sold 272 acres at a below market price to the Mason County Commissioners (WV) for the development of a nature preserve and recreation area. The real estate was purchased with grant money awarded to Mason County. A few years later the Commissioners utilized additional grant funds to develop 9 acres of the land which currently houses the Letart Community Center and includes a beautiful outdoor picnic area, playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, and a walking track. The current facility is highly utilized for group and family events.
The remaining 263 acres was never developed for its full potential as planned. During 2013 our group of citizens who work and live in and near the community joined forces and asked Mason County Commissioners for the opportunity to further develop the park. As a result the group organized the Letart Nature Park Development Organization.
