You will not want to miss visiting the History Center Museum between early June and the end of September, 2017, Sunday afternoons, 1-4pm. for our Summer 2017 Exhibit which will be entitled: “The History of Upshur County Hospitals, Doctors, Nurses, and Undertakers: If We Can’t Cure You, We’ll Bury You.” Much of the research from this Journal’s articles will be used but photographic images, artifacts, and much more will give visualization to the topics.

Each summer we have many returning visitors and some who are visiting for the very first time. We still have too many people who tell us that they want to make a visit but put it off until the exhibit closes. Make a note on your calendar to visit the exhibit this summer. We will look forward to seeing you there.
