Kickstarter Campaign Started for Pavilion in Greenbrier County


A Kickstarter campaign is planned to raise money to preserve a 180-year-old pavilion in Greenbrier County.

The campaign’s goal is to raise $25,000. The Charleston Gazette reports that the campaign will begin on Sunday with a kick-off party at the convention and visitors bureau in Lewisburg.

The Greek Revival-style pavilion was once part of the Blue Sulphur Springs spa between Dawson and Alderson. Union troops burned every structure at the site except the pavilion during the Civil War.

Preservation Alliance of West Virginia included the pavilion on its 2013 endangered properties list.

The Friends of the Blue is sponsoring the crowd-sourcing fundraising campaign.
