Remarkably, there are five roads in and out of Blue Sulphur Springs. Some have humorously speculated that all the roads were put there to make sure the moonshiners had ways to avoid the revenuers. It is more likely that the roads reflected commerce movements in days gone by, as well as the significance of the Blue Sulphur Springs Resort in its heyday.
