The central West Virginia region is steeped in long-standing
tradition and culture. From the annual Folk Festival and
hometown July fireworks display to the presentation of local art
collections, Gilmer County offers a strong presentation of
Appalachian life, in the past, present, and future.
Featuring the annual Folk
Festival, Cedar Creek Fireworks Display, the largest
art gallery in central WV, and the only full
collection of Klaude Kemper's hand-carved birds on
public display, Gilmer County's culture is deep
rooted, and admirable.
