Historical Society & Museum

From June – September, The History Center Museum opens Sunday afternoons, for a special Summer Exhibit. The Museum is one of the oldest historic landmarks in Upshur County. Plan a weekend of History by visiting the Museum, shopping & dining in the Downtown Buckhannon Historic District, and visiting the 5 Civil War Trail Markers throughout the area.

During the Civil War, the structure was commandeered for use by the Federal government (as were most churches in this area) as a food commissary. Betty Hornbeck, in her book Upshur Brothers of the Blue and Gray, wrties that on August 30, 1862, following a battle of “Watertank Hill” in a Confederate victory known as “Jenkins Raid”, twenty to thirty captured Federal prisoners were marched first to the courthose and….

“after the arms had been destroyed, the prisoners were taken to the Southern Methodist Church on West Main Street that was being used as a commissary. The church contained thousands of bushels of oats and corn, all of which were taken into the street and burned by the prisoners under order of Commander Jenkins. Green coffee beans were shoe deep in the street.”

The oil painting inside the Museum, over the front entrance depicts the looting and pillaging of the frightening night so long ago. The History Center Museum is an historic structure, built in 1856 and is the oldest extant building on Main Street, Buckhannon. It was listed on National Register of Historic Places in 1992.

Lascaux Micro-Theater
33 East Main Street
Buckhannon, WV 26201

For the month of November, Lascaux Micro-Theater brings:

LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut, “Lucky”, is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

Check out the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KLLkj84GAo

“Lucky serves as a first-rate showcase for its star as well as an ideal swan song. The man couldn’t have gone out any better.” – Mike D’Angelo, AV Club

“If you’re a Harry Dean Stanton fan, seeing him get a rare lead in “Lucky” is a kind of present and fond farewell. And if you’re not a fan – yet – it’s an essential introduction.” – Joe Leydon, Variety

With a 98% rating from Rotten Tomatoes, this is a film you won’t want to miss.

We plan to screen this film at our usual times of Friday & Saturday @ 7:30PM and Sunday @ 2:00PM through this month.

See you at the movies!
