Landmark Ceremony celebrates West Virginia’s Birthday
The Bath Historic Landmark Commission and town officials are dedicating more than 70 date plaques affixed to structures in the center of town. The plaque at the ceremony site is dated 1890.
Placement of individual plaques concludes the multiyear project that began with the successful effort led by then-Landmark Commission chairperson, Nancy Harvey, to have the town named an historic district.
Plaques were funded by individual donors and a grant from Verizon. Virtually all the structures marked with a dated plaque are included in the Walking Tour booklet available at the Visitors Center and produced by Travel Berkeley Springs.
