    This very interesting mural is on the side of a building across Main Street from the Upshur County Courthouse. The mural is of Buckhannon's City Seal, and a reminder of the rich heritage of the city. the seal of Buckhannon was designed by local artist Ross Straight, and the mural was painted in the spring of 2006 by artist Deborah Dorland.

    he Upshur County Historical Society’s History Center and Museum, in the historic “Southern Methodist Church Building,” serves as a museum of changing summer exhibits and a gathering place for historical activities. Changing summer exhibits have been presented at the Museum since 1990 along with many other seasonal and special organizational events.

    The building was erected as a simple wooden structure in 1856 by the Methodist Episcopal Church South (Southern Methodist) congregation. During the War Between the States this structure was commandeered for use (as most public buildings were) by Uhion troops. During the war the church became a commissary and was the site of the famous "Jenkins Raid," by Confederate forces.

    The museum is free, but is only open during the summer and then only for three hours a week, Sundays, 1-4 p.m.
