Preserving W.Va. History And How To Read And Socialize In Silence, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the Eastern Panhandle saw major military activity in the Civil War. But, driving through the region today, you wouldn’t know some of these historic sites exist. One county’s government is partnering with a historic preservation nonprofit to change that. Together, they’re creating a new battlefield park that commemorates local history.

Jack Walker visited the battlefield site to discuss plans for the park, and why preserving West Virginia history matters.

Also, in this show, from movies and TV to live music, there are a lot of options for entertainment in your free time these days. As Chris Schulz reports, one group in Morgantown has found a way to read and socialize in silence.
