Williamsburg Museum Annual Birthday Celebration set for June 18

Every year the Museum in Williamsburg celebrates West Virginia’s Birthday with historic entertainment and great hot dog concession with ice cream and lots of goodies.
On June 18, the program will begin at 10 a.m. with the Flag Raising by VFW Post #6737. Authors and historians, young and old, will share with the audience the love of history and their recent works.
A special presentation on McCoy Fort will include the results of the recent dating done on the logs and reveal the age of the structure.
The kitchen will open at noon, and music will be provided by local professional musicians and any attendees who wish to “Jam along” to bluegrass, folk and gospel tunes. Singers are also invited.
From 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. we will celebrate and explore our history, eat hot dogs, beans, corn pone, chili, cakes and cobblers. If you need more information please call 304-645-2153, or 781-771-4275. The museum is located one-quarter mile from downtown Williamsburg on the Williamsburg Road that goes to Frankford.
