Friends of Blackwater is partnering with the Forest Service to clean up historic sites along the Blackwater Canyon rail grade on September 22nd. Meet at the Friends of Blackwater office, in the Buxton and Landstreet building at 10 a.m. to get started. We will provide some hand tools and gloves, but make sure to wear sturdy shoes and generally be prepared for outdoor work. Our main focus will be on clearing off the old roundhouse foundation and making it more visible, but if we have enough time we may also work on cleaning up some coke ovens.
For more information contact us at 304-345-7663 or [email protected] org. Our address is 571 Douglas Road, Thomas WV 26260.
