The mission of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History is to identify, preserve, protect, promote and present the ideas, arts and artifacts of West Virginia’s heritage, building pride in our past accomplishments and confidence in our future.
Welcome from Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith.
June is West Virginia month!
Here at the Division of Culture and History, we will be offering programs that celebrate our state and its people.
The Culture Center will host the third annual West Virginia Ambassadors Camp this year, bringing eighth grade students from around the state to Charleston to learn more about our state government, arts and the capital city. On June 20, we’ll be celebrating the state’s birthday! Join us for the day’s activities and a piece of birthday cake! Archives and History lectures are scheduled this month as well.
At Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex the featured artist program continues with woodworker Ed Doughty. At the discovery desk, families are encouraged to visit Marshall County to find windows of the past and to design their own with special window etching paper.
West Virginia Independence Hall and Museum in the Park at Chief Logan State Park are filled with exhibits that offer insights into our state’s history and the people who helped make the Mountain State what it is today.
Enjoy this month and celebrate our 152nd birthday with us!
