“I’m honored to be able to dedicate this new shelter to a West Virginian who really gave back to her state in many ways,” Gov. Justice said. “It’s an exciting amenity to the park, and we just want to keep growing and building.”
Additional projects currently underway include updates to the Smith Home, repairs to the 1835 Log Barn, addition of the Barn Burner, NICA Mountain Bike Trail, and water line replacement. These projects come to a total of $150,000 in improvements.
Future projects include museum renovations and expansion, as well as additional water line replacements.
“I also am going to pledge to you today that I’m going to try with all in me to come up with the dollars to build an RV park,” Gov. Justice said. “And the reason we need to build an RV park is to be able to give this place another income stream.”
Gov. Justice was joined by West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Director Steve McDaniel for the announcement.
