Howard Boggs of Keyser and Richard Ruddle, curator of the Boggs Museum, discussed achievements of the Pendleton County Historical Society and some of the long-range plans for the group and the museum.
Boggs has been a long-time supporter of the museum as his family tree goes back to the county, and the museum is named after his cousins who donated the building to the historical society. His most recent financial donation will greatly assist the organization in the achievement of its goals of preserving and sharing the rich history of the county.
The Pendleton County Historical Society will be hosting a public meeting beginning at 2 p.m. Oct. 15. The meeting will be at the Upper Tract Presbyterian Church building and will feature a presentation by Professor John Taylor, Emeritus, on the topic of the Civil War in and around Pendleton County
