FAIRMONT -

West Virginia is celebrating its 150th birthday this year and people all over the state are finding ways to celebrate.

The Marion County Historical Society sponsored the Mountaineer State History Expo Saturday at its historic county courthouse.

People were able to take a walk through West Virginia history by looking at exhibits, listening to music, watching performances, and more.

"My exhibit here has to deal with the big bands that Fairmont had here years ago," said Geraldine Vilar, Marion County Historical Society. "The night clubs where everyone used to go and have fun and dance. The Marion County Historical Society has done so much over the years to bring back the histories."

Everyone who attended the Historical Society could even get a ride on Marion County's oldest trolley.
