www.heritagefarmmuseum.com/ - "Step back in time at this farm museum and village which recreates and preserves our Appalachian heritage." 


In my opinion, this attraction, the Heritage Farm Museum, is a "must see" stop when you are in our area.  Located only about 10 minutes from the antique shopping district, Mike & Henriella Perry & their family, have created an 1800's village in which they have more than 15 restored buildings that include a replica of an old Country Store, a One Room Schoolhouse, Log Church, Blacksmith's Shop, a Petting Zoo & lots, lots more.  They also have Bed & Breakfast Log Cabins you can stay in - it's a wonderful place for weddings, reunions, or just a great day trip.

Central City (1893-1909) was a flourishing manufacturing town with several industries. It was annexed in 1909 by the City of Huntington and referred to as 14th St. West, or West Huntington. 14th Street West is now the main business street in Central City. Today it and the surrounding area is a viable part of Huntington and known as Old Central City. Locals know it is a great place to shop in the Farmer's Market & the many antique and specialty shops clustered in the approximately 6 block area.   Easily accessibly, located 2 blocks off of Interstate 64 and surrounded by other great local attractions, you'll enjoy spending the day with us. 

www.camdenpark.com/ - "When Camden Park first opened, Teddy Rossevelt was president and the ragtime of Scott Joplin and the marching music of John Phillip Sousa emanated from local bandstands. In succeeding decades the amusement park just west of Huntington would be the setting for the first local baseball games, thousands of picnics, fairs, marathon dancing, roller derbies, flagpole sitting, a swimming pool, a zoo, scores of different rides, and many other attractions. A West Virginia landmark, Camden Park has been in operation each summer since 1903."


Under 10 minutes from Old Central City, this vintage amusement park has been around forever it seems.  I have fond memories of coming here as a child & riding the roller coaster, which was built in 1958 & is still running!

www.blenkoglass.com/ - "Join the thousands who visit the Blenko Glass Company and its Visitor Center."


The world famous Blenko Glass factory is located at Milton, WV, just another 20 minutes up Interstate 64 from Old Central City.  For over 100 years Blenko has maintained the tradition of hand made glass.   If you love Art Glass, this is another "must see" attraction, from a special observation deck you can even look into a large area inside the plant and watch them make their creations from molten glass.  They have a very informative website, plus you can browse & buy their glass online.
