W.Va. city eyes Stonewall Jackson cultural center
Question of the Day
CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Proponents of a cultural center in West Virginia honoring native son Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson are assessing the costs of al center to interpret the Confederate general’s life.
They learned this week that moving a cabin to Clarksburg and transforming it into a cultural center would require more than $250,000 over 10 years from the city.
The Exponent Telegram (http://bit.ly/1hJnhfl ) says the city purchased the cabin from a Buckhannon resident about three years ago, but has been unable to find a qualified contractor to move it to the city at a reasonable price.
The center would examine Jackson’s life and the lives of Harrison County residents involved in the statehood movement. The center would have exhibits, concerts and workshops.
Jackson was born in Clarksburg before it seceded from Virginia.
