Charleston Team Cycling Classic

July 22 @ 9:00 am - July 23 @ 3:00 pm
Haddad Riverfront Park, 600 Kanawha Blvd. E, Charleston, WEST VIRGINIA 25305 + Google Map

The inaugural Charleston Team Cycling Classic will be truly one of a kind. Teams of three cyclists will compete over two days in three disciplines to decide an overall winner.

Each stage will award points to cyclists for their finish placing in that event (the Team Time Trial will award 1, 2, and 3 points to the first place team so it isn't weighted more than other events).

A podium sweep would earn 1, 2, and 3 points for a team total of 6 points for that event.

At the end of three events, the lowest cumulative team points total wins. In the event of a tie, the Team Time Trial results will be the first tie-breaker (there will be more, but it's highly unlikely we'll need them).

This race won't be over until the last finish line is crossed! It's your chance to stand on the podium of a stage race with your two best teammates.

Plays at Adaland

July 22 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Adaland Mansion and Historic Barn, 324 Mansion Drive, Philippi, WEST VIRGINIA 26416 US + Google Map

Adaland is most pleased to serve as the showcase for Philippi playwright Alma J. Bennett, who brings one of WV’s important historical figures, Laura Jackson Arnold, the sister of Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, to life in “Dearest Sister”, a one act play that is followed by “Act II.”

The plays tell about Laura’s life and relationship with her famous brother. In 1844 when she was 18, Laura married Jonathan Arnold and moved to Beverly. Following the Battle of Rich Mountain in 1861, Federal troops occupied Beverly, a VA town that had strong Confederate sympathies. In stark contrast, Laura Jackson Arnold was an outspoken Unionist, even nursing wounded Union soldiers in her Beverly home. Laura’s Union support created fissures in the once close relationship between Laura and her brilliant Confederate military leader brother.

Dessert followed by a live show on pavilion. Adults $15.00.

History Center Museum – Upshur County Doctors, Nurses and Undertakers

July 23 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
History Center Museum, 81 West Main Street, Buckhannon, WV 26201 United States + Google Map

Summer 2017 Museum Exhibit: Upshur County Doctors, Nurses and Undertakers - If we can't cure you, we'll bury you.

Come to downtown Buckhannon to walk through one of the oldest structures in the area, that features a museum exhibit Sunday afternoons from 1 - 4 PM.

The Museum's building is one of the oldest historic landmarks in Upshur County. During the Civil War, the structure was commandeered for use by the Federal government (as were most churches in this area) as a food commissary. Betty Hornbeck, in her book Upshur Brothers of the Blue and Gray, writes that on August 30, 1862, following a battle of "Watertank Hill" in a Confederate victory known as "Jenkins Raid", twenty to thirty captured Federal prisoners were marched first to the courthouse and....

"after the arms had been destroyed, the prisoners were taken to the Southern Methodist Church on West Main Street that was being used as a commissary. The church contained thousands of bushels of oats and corn, all of which were taken into the street and burned by the prisoners under order of Commander Jenkins. Green coffee beans were shoe deep in the street."

The oil painting inside the Museum, over the front entrance depicts the looting and pillaging of the frightening night so long ago. The History Center Museum is an historic structure, built in 1856 and is the oldest extant building on Main Street, Buckhannon. It was listed on National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
