An all-volunteer organization with a mission to preserve the rich history and culture of the Weirton Area and share it as widely as possible.
My husband and I were in the area on vacation and enjoy museums as a general rule, so we decided to stop. What a gem! The docent, Mr. Kelley, was a wealth of local knowledge and had personally curated several of the displays. We really enjoyed the local sports display and the displays about the various ethnic groups that came to Weirton in the heyday of steel. Our only regret was that we neglected to get a picture of the football trophy that weighed 40 lbs. (Our phones were dying and we only got one photo.)
A neat museum full of local artifacts! Worth a stop - self guided and you'll only need under an hour to visit.
Interesting little museum with lots of artifacts and memorabilia. We learned a couple of things about the area we hadn't known. Worth a stop.
All grandparents are from Weirton; the decline of the mill and American industry in general is hard to take, and these folks are to be applauded for their attempts at preserving the heritage of Holiday's Cove. The virtual presentation of the fete honoring my long-departed Grandmother was very well done. With respect to the traveling Smithsonian exhibit about rural America, I personally felt it was strangely disconnected from reality and offensive, and I got the impression that it was assembled by a cabal of East Coast elites as some kind of boorish attempt to explain how the anyone outside urban refinement (in in Wierton and surroundings) could possibly have endured such a wretched existence; as if the mere fact that inhabitants survived the challenges imposed upon them merited study.
Very friendly people who organized a field trip here for my job where we provide services to adults with ID. The staff was polite and involved with our individuals who were asking questions. They were patient and let us go through and see all the interesting "artifacts" of our area. The steel mill history and old bridge history was part of our favorites. They even took time for us to explore upstairs and invited us back again. We even received free donuts by chance. They were also very lenient about us taking pictures. Great experience for a local girl or anyone in the area!
