This week on West Virginia PBS, you can watch The Roosevelts: An Intimate History from Ken Burns. Many will recall the story of Arthurdale – a New Deal planned community in Preston County, West Virginia. Arthurdale was a pet project of Eleanor Roosevelt. We dug into our archives to find a documentary by the late Ross Watne that tells this unique West Virginia story.
