Fort Warwick Museum Grand Opening
May 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Fort Warwick is located on Deer Creek in Green Bank, Pocahontas County, West Virginia. This militia fort was built in 1774, by George Moffatts’ and George Matthews’ companies. Militia trained here before marching west where they took part in the Battle of Point Pleasant. The fort was a functional frontier refuge until the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783. Many seasons of archaeology have provided information about the fort. The modern farm includes maple syrup production.
There will be sire tours, and maple syrup and candy, t-shirts, and hats and historical booklets for purchase. The museum includes artifacts and displays from previous archaeology. Archaeologists Dr. W. Stephen McBride and Dr. Kim Arbogast McBride will lead excavations on May 14. Contact Dr. Kim A. McBride at [email protected] to reserve a spot to participate in archaeology. Some spots may be available for excavation “walk-ons.” Visitors are welcome.
