Dixon, Jr., Chief Historian from the C&O Historical Society, ride part of the C&O Greenbrier Branch, and be first to view the new 2019 Exhibit: The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in West Virginia!

You can view the full agenda and registration form here. To register for the membership meeting, print and return the lower portion of the agenda. We look forward to sharing a new exhibit with you in April!

That’s a Wrap

Thank you to all of our visitors throughout the 2018 season! It proved to be our busiest season yet.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the B&O museum in Baltimore for generously loaning artifacts, resources, and expertise to our 2018 exhibit. Another thank you goes out to the individuals who lent us artifacts from their personal collections.

While the museum is closed to the public over the winter months, we will be hard at work on our 2019 exhibit The Chesapeake and Ohio in West Virginia! Be sure to check back here and on our Facebook page for updates on the exhibit, opening day, and new programs at the museum.

WVRRM is looking forward to a 2019 season that brings us into our community more than ever before.

Regarding both the B&O and future C&O exhibit: This project is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations do not necessarily represent those of the West Virginia Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Wishing everyone a safe winter!

Getting Ready for 2019

This Wednesday three of our volunteers had the great pleasure of visiting The Chesapeake and Ohio Historical Society in Clifton Forge, Va. It was great time getting to see the Archives and Museum and getting to know our new friends. WVRRM is very excited to work with COHS on our 2019 Exhibit.
