Arthurdale Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1950s. East side of WV 92, between G Rd. and School Driveway

This sandstone building with Gothic lines, planned as early as the 1940s, was carefully designed to blend with the nearby inn and the stone buildings of the town center. After sufficient funds were secured, it was erected as a community effort during the 1950s, embodying the continuing cooperative spirit of Arthurdale's residents. Eleanor Roosevelt made her last visit to Arthurdale in 1960 to dedicate the church.
