Happy Birthday, West Virginia!

It’s West Virginia Day! Our state is celebrating the 154th anniversary of the day that West Virginia officially became a member of the United States. For those of you that love history like I do, the Public Holidays website has a nice article on our journey to statehood. The citizens of West Virginia have a pride in their home that I think is unique, and our visitors feel it when they come to our beautiful state.
