History enthusiasts gathered at the Marion County Courthouse on Saturday for the Mountaineer State History Expo.

The event was free to the public and featured live music, historical reenactors, exhibitions, and more. Groups from all over the state set up displays to spread the word about their organizations.

“A lot of the people that have exhibits here are from the local communities, so you get an idea of what kind of organizations are out there that you might want to participate in,” said Joni Liston, Archivist for the Marion County Historical Society.
