Welcome to 2015! 

Here at the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, we are looking forward to a year filled with interesting programs, fun-filled activities and creative exhibits for West Virginians and traveling visitors of all ages!

A few of our youth programs, including Poetry Out Loud, Dance Festival and History Bowl, are scheduled for this winter and spring.  Our artists programs, including the annual West Virginia Juried Quilt Exhibition and the biennial Juried Exhibition, will open soon for West Virginia’s talented artists and artisans.

All of our sites – the Culture Center in Charleston with the West Virginia State Archives Library and West Virginia State Museum, Camp Washington Carver in Fayette County, Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Marshall County, Museum in the Park in Logan County and West Virginia Independence Hall in Ohio County – will feature programs, lectures and exhibits that celebrate our state’s heritage, culture and arts.

Please add us to your 2015 resolution list!  Visit one of the sites, join us for Vandalia or String Band, attend a lecture or movie.  We look forward to sharing the stories of West Virginia with you.
