West Virginia State Parks are committed to preserving and promoting the culturally significant histories of the people and places within the park system. The timber industry’s influence in the Mountain State is an important part of the history of Cass, where the state park has preserved a former logging company town and railroad used during the timber boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Over the course of the past two years, graduate students in the WVU History Department conducted research for an exhibit on the history of the timber industry in the Allegheny Highlands region of West Virginia. The exhibit, Timber/Timbre: Falling Trees and Rising Voices –– Music and Logging in West Virginia, 1880-1930, will be open at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park from June 5, 2021, through October 15, 2021.
The exhibit and four unique programs are presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations do not necessarily represent those of the West Virginia Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional funding has been provided by the WVU Humanities Center.
