Heritage Park and Museum, Spencer West Virginia

Museums, Galleries and Archives (Local and County Historical Societies, Museums, and Archives)

Listen

Nestled in downtown Spencer, Heritage Park was created in the mid-1980s as both a public park and community center. The complex includes a small local history museum within a restored historic train depot and a one-room schoolhouse that was constructed in the early 1900s and served the neighboring Roane County community of Looneyville. Both the school and museum are only open during special events as well as festivals and during Saturday afternoon in the summertime. The community building is available to rent.
