Second Saturday Film, titled “A Moving Monument: The West Virginia State Capitol”
May 13 @ 1:00 pm
will be screened Saturday, May 13, at 1 and 3 p.m. Did you know that West Virginia’s State Capitol was not always located in Charleston? First located in Wheeling, it moved to Charleston, back to Wheeling and again to Charleston. The Capitol’s history also includes a disastrous fire, a “Pasteboard Capitol,” and the current Capitol designed by architect Cass Gilbert. The 1-hour film was produced by Motion Masters in 2008 and is shown courtesy of West Virginia Public Broadcasting. https://wvculture.org/grave-creek-mound-archaeological-complex-celebrates-historic-preservation-and-gardening-in-may/
