Artist's Description

As we were travelling back from Washington, D.C., we decided, as we often do, to take the back road instead of the Interstate. We especially found it better to see the real West Virginia than to fly by it on the freeway. As she always does, my wife checks her travel apps to make sure we do not pass up anything interesting. This is one of the most interesting buildings I have come across in a long time. It is a really historic building, not a recreation of what was once there, but what is still there. I actually uploaded this a week ago, I believe, just to have it disappear after I had typed in the description & added it to all the groups I felt it belonged.
