If you haven’t gotten to check out our exhibit The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad: West Virginia’s First Railway, there are only three weeks left before we close for the winter! We open in April 2019 with a brand new exhibit.
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. To learn more about COHS you can visit their website. (cohs.org).
We are happy to welcome our new AFHA AmeriCorps member, Cicely. She is coming to us from Pennsylvania. Cicely will be helping to close out our 2018 exhibit The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. At the end of the open season (April-October) she will begin putting together our next exhibit: The Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. We are excited to welcome Cicely to our team and we look forward to working with her on our 2019 Exhibit.
