Day 1

As we make our way towards West Virginia we will stop at the Penn Alps Restaurant for lunch and the shops of local artisans at Spruce Forest Artisan Village which is comprised of cabins that have been moved to the site from area farms and homesteads. The oldest building, Markley House, dates back to 1775. Each building has a unique history. While at the village, see the Casselman River Bridge, constructed in 1813. At the time, it was the largest stone arch bridge in America. We will then check-in to our lodging in Elkins, WV for the next two nights. Dinner and entertainment this evening will be at the Gandy Dancer Theatre.

Day 2

This morning, after a continental breakfast, you are free to explore Elkins and the West Virginia Railroad Museum on your own. By mid-morning, we will board the New Tygart Flyer for High Falls. This wilderness excursion features mountain grades, an "S" curve tunnel, a high bridge and miles of unspoiled mountain views. Vintage diesel-powered locomotives climb along the cascading Shavers Fork of the Cheat River to the High Falls of Cheat. Enjoy the views and lunch while relaxing in the climate controlled coach. Upon returning to Elkins, we will depart for Beverly, WV for a visit to the Beverly Heritage Center, a compelling heritage attraction. This evening dinner and special entertainment will take place at Graceland Mansion on the beautiful campus of Davis & Elkins College.

Day 3

After breakfast we will enjoy a driving tour of Elkins enroute to Philippi, WV. Here we will see the Philippi Covered Bridge, the site of the first land battle of the Civil War, and will take a walk across this piece of U.S. history. We will then tour the Adaland Mansion. This stately brick home is set against the rolling hills of Barbour County and was built in 1870. The 23-room, Greek Revival mansion house has been restored with great attention to authenticity and features homemade brick and walnut woodwork throughout. After the mansion tour and lunch we say farewell with many happy memories having been made on our mountain music and rails tour of West Virginia.
