Endangered Historic Structures

West Virginia Morning

On West Virginia Morning, a ten percent tax credit helps restore historic structures in the state, but a group says that’s not enough and they are lobbying to increase it and our collaborative series with StoryCorps continues with a conversation about faith between an elderly man and his pastor.

That’s on West Virginia Morning from West Virginia Public Broadcasting – telling West Virginia’s story.

Feagans Mill in Jefferson County W.Va. was recently added to the state’s Endangered Historic Structures list.  The structures on the list are at risk of facing demolition and neglect. 

Feagans Mill, a historic structure composed mainly of gray stone and a brick creamery to its side, rests in the woods surrounded by sycamore and cedars.  Some of its federal-style windows are now boarded up while others with broken panes allow the foliage to grow inside the crevices.
