Donate to keep improving the BHC

Donate NOW!

The Beverly Heritage Center provides museum, visitor center, events and more to tell the story of our heritage, encourage heritage tourism for community development, and to benefit the local community. Your donation will help to support programs and exhibits, care for our collections, events, educational outreach, and more. As a visitor center, BHC welcomes visitors and provides information for them to enjoy and learn about Beverly, Rich Mountain Battlefield, and the heritage of Randolph County. We also are responsible for maintaining and preserving the four historic buildings that make up the BHC. All of this takes time, effort, and funds for programming, preservation and operations. We count on your donations to keep improving the Beverly Heritage Center!

Volunteer

The Beverly Heritage Center operates with minimal paid staff, and relies on volunteers for many of our needed tasks. Volunteers can help at the front desk or giving tours, help out with special events, be period dress docents, help keep the facility clean and grounds maintained, assist with archiving or exhibits, or many other tasks. Please drop by or contact us to find out more.

How Beverly Heritage Center Operates:

The Beverly Heritage Center is a partnership between Historic Beverly Preservation and Rich Mountain Battlefield Foundation. These two organizations collectively own nine buildings in Beverly plus the nearby battlefield, with the purpose of saving the historic fabric and character of this town and battlefield landscape, educating the public about our local history, and serving visitors who come to Randolph County. In creating the BHC and restoring the four historic buildings it includes, we were fortunate enough to receive grants from the National Park Service, West Virginia Division of Culture and History and Department of Transportation, the National Endowment of the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, along with over $1 million in private donations. This work included restoring four significant historic buildings, installing the HVAC and other systems for modern functioning, reconstructing the cupola on the 1808 courthouse, building the visitor's center gallery, and creating a series of four permanent exhibits. These grants were for one-time expenses. But moving forward, we continue to maintain and preserve the buildings and operating systems, improve exhibits, and offer programming and visitor services to the public. We need your help to continue the work we do. The Beverly Heritage Center relies on admissions, memberships, donations, and community support for our daily operations, our interactive programming, and the conservation and care of our historic buildings and artifacts. Your tax-deductible contribution will help ensure for now and the future that Beverly's stories will continue to be told. Thank you for being a part of what we do.
