Did you know that the National Basketball Association symbol is modeled from West Virginia basketball great, Jerry West? That’s just one interesting discovery you’ll make in a room that celebrates our stars and our state. You’ll see souvenirs from the state Centennial and a selection of art from the 1960’s and 70’s when the state’s art revival took place. The biggest little surprise in the room is the West Virginia Tartan. Our state’s official Tartan is a medley of colors that represent our state. Learn what each color stands for in this colorful fabric.
