Travel with Wesbury to Scenic West Virginia, September 13-16

Trip Itinerary

Our journey begins with a visit to the Johnstown Flood Museum which shares the history of the Dam collapse on May 31, 1889, causing massive flooding in Johnstown, PA. From here, we head to Coopers Rock State Forest for a breath-taking view. As the day ends enjoy dinner and a tour at Adaland Mansion then settle in to the Weston Holiday Inn- Express, our home for the next three nights.

On day two, explore the West Virginia Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. This Civil War-era psychiatric hospital has nine acres of floor space and is said to be the largest hand-cut stone building in the United States. Guides explain the architecture of the hospital and its influence on local and national history. Then a tour of the Appalachian Glass and Mountaineer Military Museums will round out our day.

Next is a trip aboard the New Tygart Flyer. This four hour, 46 mile rail excursion follows the Shavers Fork River on a scenic ride to an 18-foot-high waterfall. Afterwards, visit the Stirrup Gallery which boasts an amazing collection of Americana. The day ends with the “Gandy Dancer Dinner Theatre” a two hour musical show featuring music from the 1950’s, Country, Gospel and family-friendly comedy.

Finally it’s time to head north. Along the way experience the Exhibition Coal Mine and camp tour offering a true representation of early 20th century coal camp life. Along the journey, enjoy lunch at the New River Gorge followed by panoramic views at the Canyon Rim Visitor Center.
