WV-150 Sesquicentennial Exhibit

The WV-150 Sesquicentennial Exhibit celebrates our statehood from 1860 to the present with an eclectic collection of West Virginia artifacts and art.
Many of the suggestions for what to showcase in the exhibit came from West Virginians who offered suggestions throughout last year.
