Past West Virginia Day Exhibits
West Virginia Day exhibits
The WVRHC began celebrating West Virginia Day in 1987. Celebrations over the years have included speaker panels, exhibits, cake, and commemorative posters. In 2011, we began creating slide presentations so those who couldn't travel to the exhibits could still enjoy them. Click the images below to see the commemorative poster and exhibit description for that year, as well as links to the digital version of the exhibit, where available.
