Welcome to Historic Beverly, West Virginia—the small town with big history!
Located between the TRA campsite and the NSS convention site, Beverly offers a variety of options for visitors to take in its long, rich history. The Beverly Heritage Center and the Randolph County Historical Society museums, located in the center of Beverly, show visitors examples of life in Beverly from the earliest settlers in the 1770s to more recent history.
The Beverly Heritage Center combines four very different historic buildings with a functional 21st century gallery. These restored buildings, essentially four museums in one, tell the story of the Battle of Rich Mountain and the First Campaign of the American Civil War, the pivotal role of the Staunton-Parkersburg Turnpike, and daily life in a small rural county seat through the 19th Century. The Center has museum exhibits, visitor information, public restrooms, gift shop, and research archives. Or, partake in a self-guided historic Beverly walking tour at your leisure.
From July to October 2020, the Beverly Heritage Center gallery addition will house a special exhibit – Old Cavin’ Haven. The exhibit will feature historical caving in Randolph County, West Virginia. Visitors will be treated to Randolph County caving history as told through written words, photographs, drawings, artifacts, and caver voices. Visitors will have opportunities to touch, try this and participate in parts of the exhibit.
