Friends, city folk and countrymen lend me your ears,

This Heritage Weekend Festival is 62 years old this year.  This unique event started with a dream of a few good people in Hardy County as a way of raising money for the public library, the hub of every small town. Last year was a great success and we were able to contribute nicely to the library. That is our goal again this year.

Heritage Weekend is a unique event and is the only countywide festival in West Virginia. Hardy County is seeping in American history and we are trying to preserve it by showing the younger generations what it was like living here in bygone days.  Each year an historical home is highlighted and profiled on a decorative tile. We are pleased to announce this year’s tile house, The Inn at Abbott Farm.  This home was built in 1890 and is being shared with us for Heritage Weekend by Lisa O’Leary and Bob Osterhoudt, who have worked endlessly to restore this beautiful home to its former glory.

I want to give a special thanks to the Hardy County Community, the Hardy County Public Library, the Board of HCT&CA, community sponsors, and the property owners who open up their homes for tours. It takes a village to make this weekend a success and I thank all of you for helping!

Come participate and enjoy the food, music, arts, craft show, car show, home tours, walking tours, civil war encampments, historic church services, luminary service, and so much more that will take place throughout Hardy and Grant Counties.

Have fun and come back next year!
