Manchin, Capito Announce $5K For Arthurdale Heritage

Charleston, WV – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $5,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. in West Virginia.

“Arthurdale Heritage Inc. prides itself on its dedication to preserving the historic town of Arthurdale, which was established in 1934 as a homestead community for West Virginians in Preston County and the Scott’s Run area. I am pleased this historic town and organization received support from the NEH to continue their great work in preserving West Virginian and American history for generations to come,” said Senator Manchin.

“West Virginia is a state rich with culture and history. Arthurdale is a great example of the history that is preserved in the Mountain State, and I’m glad to see NEH undertaking this initiative. I look forward to future generations learning more about this part of our state,” said Senator Capito.
