SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW OPEN HOUSE
SATURDAY-SUNDAY, JUNE 25-26 FROM 2-5 PM
Join us as we celebrate the weddings of two Kump families with a two-day Open House event introducing new interpretive displays and vintage Kump family wedding dresses and memorabilia. This will feature Edna Scott Kump's dress (1907) and Peggy Kump Roberts' dress (1936) as well as objects symbolic of traditional wedding customs. Other new exhibits will be introduced to the public for the first time. The Open House is free, but donations are encouraged. Parking is available in the rear of the Kump House. A local Eleanor Roosevelt reenactor will be present each afternoon at 3 p.m. The event and displays are partially funded through a West Virginia Humanities Council mini-grant.
