Travel Tips for Charleston

Kanawha County Public Library

by Stephen-KarenConn

Here's a great place to get your VT fix. I took advantage of the free internet access provided by the library to check my e-mail, and also was able to find some free visitor brochures here which helped me discover things to see and do in West Virginia's Capitol City. Most public libraries in America now offer free internet access to the public, and are a good alternative to an internet cafe.

West Virginia's Moving Capitol

by Stephen-KarenConn

For political reasons, West Virginia's Capitol was moved four times between 1861 and 1885, from Wheeling to Charleston then back to Wheeling and back again to Charleston. This historical marker, in a small downtown park at the corner of Capitol and Lee Streets, marks the site of the West Virginia Capitol Building from 1885 until it burned in 1921. Following the fire, the current Capitol was built along the river two miles to the east.

Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight

by Stephen-KarenConn

This statue of America's 16th president was originally designed by Fred Torrey of Fairmont, West Virginia, in the late 1930s. His sculpture is based on Vachel Lindsay's poem by the same title, and depicts Lincoln pacing at night in a robe, under the strain of a nation torn apart by war. Some historians credit Lincoln with uniting the divided country, while others say Lincoln's harsh stand against states rights was the cause of the War Between the States.

Torrey's 42-inch plaster model of the statue was exhibited in the 1939-40 New York World's Fair. Torrey died in 1969 without completing the statue in bronze. Charleston sculptor Bernie Wiepper was contracted to reproduce this nine-and-one-half-foot sculpture from the original model, and it now stands in front of the West Virginia State Capitol.

The Mountianeer

by Stephen-KarenConn

Erected just two years after the statue of "Stonewall" Jackson (preceeding tip), The Mountaineer carries a U.S. flag and a musket, representing the home guard who answered Lincoln's call to arms in 1861. Sculptor Henry K. Bush-Brown of New York spent two years in West Virginia searching for a model for his work. The statue was dedicated in 1912 on the grounds of the downtown Capitol, "To the hallowed memories of the brave men and devoted women who saved West Virginia to the Union." The Mountaineer was moved to its current location on the Capitol grounds when the new Capitol was built in 1921.

West Virginia Veteran's Memorial

by Stephen-KarenConn

This memorial, designed by P. Joseph Mullins, was dedicated on November 11, 1995, to honor the 10,174 West Virginian's who have given their lives in service to their country. These include the following West Virginia war casualties:
World War One 1,996
World War Two 6,341
Korean War 954
Vietnam War 874
