Glen Jean, West Virginia—The rich heritage of southern West Virginia is celebrated through photographs in the 2015 Hidden History Photo exhibit. These history-based photographs are currently on display at New River Gorge National River's Sandstone Visitor Center in Sandstone. First displayed at Tamarack in September, this traveling exhibit will continue to be rotated through several area visitor centers and galleries. These featured images are the winning photos from 2015's Hidden History Photo Contest, part of the annual Hidden History Weekend event held in late September. Let these photos inspire you to explore area history, perhaps taking photos of your own to enter in next year's contest.
