West Virginia Culture and History has a History of Renick Community" published by the WVU Agricultural Extension Agency in the late 1920's. It's quite interesting, and ends with this discription of the "current" state of Renick:
On date of February 15, 1924 the first County Life Council meeting was held. The community at present is primarily agricultural, containing about two hundred homes of which about seventy-five percent are farm homes. There are now four churches, a high school, four graded schools, a bank, two mills, a desk factory, a rock crusher, a creamery, and eight stores.
