The West Virginia Division of Culture and History will unveil the first installment of a new exhibit entitled "Legislative Districts" this afternoon on the lower level of the Cultural Center, adjacent to the temporary cafeteria. Senate President Earl Ray Tomblin, D-Logan, will join Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith of the Division to view the exhibit at 3 p.m.
"Legislative Districts" is comprised of historic photographs from the West Virginia State Archives that have been chosen according to legislative districts in the state. The first segment has photographs from Senate District 7, and House districts 17, 18 and 19 and will remain on display through Feb. 9.
The next installment of the exhibit will open Feb. 12, and will present photos from Senate districts 8 and 17, as well as House districts 30, 31 and 32. The exhibit will continue to rotate photographs of House and Senate districts on a weekly basis throughout the legislative session.
