The West Virginia Division of Culture
and History is proud to be able to present its programs at no charge to the
public but without a solution to the state’s budget situation, this could be
the last year that programs of this type could be offered. The division, led by
Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith, is an agency within the Office of Secretary of
Education and the Arts with Gayle Manchin, cabinet secretary. It brings
together the past, present and future through programs and services focusing on
archives and history, arts, historic preservation and museums. For more information

and History is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
