Preservation of Center Hall Continues

Our wonderful community is blessed for so many reasons. One is the strength of support for its nationally important historic buildings. We appreciate each and every donation; large or small and every volunteer. We appreciate the National Park Service and the WV State Historic Preservation Office for their partial funding of the replacement of siding on the back of our beautiful Hall.
