Beverly Heritage Days: Centuries of History
Featuring the Battle of Rich Mountain Reenactment
July 13, 14, 15, 2018
Beverly and Rich Mountain, West Virginia
Join us in 2018 for our timeline heritage event to share the history of settlement, conflict, and daily life in the Tygart Valley.
Beverly, West Virginia was the original county seat of Randolph County, and was a crucial crossroads through settlement, Civil War and 20th Century history. Located 6 miles south of Elkins along US Rt 219, Beverly is an active heritage tourism destination with town historic district, Rich Mountain Battlefield, and multiple museums and shops anchored by the Beverly Heritage Center.
Beverly Heritage Days is our primary heritage event of the year. Living history camps will include Native American, Pioneer, Civil War, and World War II eras. For this year we are seeking additional representation from post‐ Civil War periods, including World War I and civilian life. Living history, first person impressions, demonstrations, heritage crafts and displays are all welcome. The event will welcome music from a variety of periods, and a “timeline” dance Saturday evening will feature music and dancing from 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
