A Message from the DSHPO
West Virginians are actively engaged in historic preservation…. It has been my pleasure to be involved in various aspects of the five year statewide comprehensive historic preservation plan, including the public meetings and the review of questionnaire results. During this process, people shared their passion for our state’s history and demonstrated their commitment to a county or town’s historic resources - or an individual property. Their concerns as well as their encouraging words have helped form the content of this plan.
The review of our successes is encouraging. Much has been accomplished. Of course, there have also been stumbling blocks and disappointments, but most people are not willing to give up on historic preservation. It is my hope that this plan focuses the direction of our activities for the next five years and I look forward to working with everyone to accomplish its goals and objectives.
