Weston

Overview

About WestonWeston serves as a commercial center for an agricultural area and supports glass industries. Surveyed by Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson's grandfather, the town contains several rambling Victorian-era homes. The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum , formerly called Weston State Hospital, is surrounded by vast landscaped grounds. The main building, begun in 1860 and completed in 1865, has 9 acres of floor space and is said to be the largest hand-cut stone building in the United States.

The Citizens Bank Building at 201 Main Ave. is noted among devotees of classic Art Deco architecture. Built 1928-30, this 54-foot tall Indiana limestone structure is believed to be the tallest single-story building in the United States; the wrought-iron work is by the noted artist Samuel Yellen. Inside, the woodwork is hand-carved American walnut, and the 45-foot suspended plaster ceiling has a relief of the Great Seal of West Virginia. Also of interest in nearby Horner is the Central West Virginia Genealogical and Historical Library and Museum, which is open to the public for research; phone (304) 269-7091.

Every Labor Day weekend, the city celebrates Jackson's Mill Jubilee , complete with Civil War re-enactments, heritage exhibits, music, fireworks and arts and crafts vendors.

Nearby Stonewall Resort State Park surrounds the state's second-largest lake. This park offers many recreational opportunities and facilities. For more information phone (304) 269-7400.
