Happy West Virginia Day!


Today is West Virginia Day. On June 20, 1863, West Virginia became the 35th state by proclamation signed by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War years. It wasn’t until an act of the legislature in 1927 which made today an official holiday. Known for its natural beauty, the Mountain State attracts visitors to places like the overlook at Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park, located on the rim of the Gauley River Canyon, pictured here.
