PHILIPPI, W.Va. (WBOY) — Philippi’s historic Adaland Mansion had a full house for its Thanksgiving buffet, with people coming from all over to enjoy some food in a historic venue.

Guests reserved their spots in advance to enjoy a variety of food options like turkey, ham, mixed veggies, stuffing, homemade bread and a number of different dessert options.

12 News spoke to Jeannie Mozley, house manager of Adaland Mansion, on why they chose to host this event.

“I think it’s important because it’s a historic home, it was built in 1780 and the house itself is open for tours. You can get the history and a guided tour here and you have to make a reservation for that now and it’s something where people can come eat like they would in an elegant restaurant,” said Mozley.

Adaland Mansion has a variety of upcoming Christmas events for the public to enjoy, a full list of events for the remainder of the year can be found on the image below.
