Helpful Locations

As you’ve noticed, we have a very large, world-recordsmashing-sized telescope here in Pocahontas County. But in order for the Green Bank Telescope to perform its job, it needs a quiet, peaceful place in which to exist - free from harmful radio frequency broadcasts. There are over 13,000 square miles of land in this area designated as the National Quiet Zone. Sometimes, your cell phones may not work, so here is a list of public phones visitors can easily access. We’ve also listed where you’ll have cell phone service away from your lodging location WiFi, a list of the bank ATMs, and pharmacies as well as the hospital, just in case you need any medical attention.Click here for a downloadable PDF
