Strange Creek is a rural residential community located on State Highway 4, about 15 miles from Interstate 79, Exit 51. With forested hills and abundant wildlife, the area is very peaceful and scenic.

In 2002 Russell and Angela Greenlief purchased some land and moved their family and their business to Strange Creek from another part of Braxton County. “We really like having plenty of land for our pastures and paddocks,” said Mrs. Greenlief. “Being so close to the Interstate makes it easy for customers to find us.” Their business, Desert Tag Arabians, uses the internet to attract customers from all over North America to purchase their special breed of horses.

“Our children have really enjoyed the schools,” said Mrs. Greelief. “Our son is in Middle School in Flatwoods and our daughter is in Kindergarten at Flatwoods Elementary School.”

Strange Creek was named for an early visitor, William Strange. A renowned hunter of fox, buffalo, and bear, he reportedly became lost, or disabled, in the forest, and died at the foot of a large beech tree in 1792 or 1793. Several years later his skeleton and gun were found. Carved on the tree was the passage “Strange is my name and strange the ground, and strange that I cannot be found.”
