The Stealey-Goff-Vance House in Clarksburg hosted a spring cleanup event Saturday afternoon to prepare for an upcoming exhibit.
This was part of a larger cleanup intended to help preserve items to display later. Volunteers also sorted through artifacts for an exhibit premiering in August celebrating the anniversary of women’s suffrage.
The ultimate goal of the cleanup was to make sure local people know the history of the area.
“Preservation of our history and our culture is extremely important. If we forget that, we kind of forget where we came from and that’s something that we want to hold on to,” said Americorps member Susan Cook.
The new exhibit will be displayed starting August 1st at the Clarksburg History Museum.
