 Step Into West Virginia History At The State Fair

8/16/2010

    Fairlea, W.Va. – Festival goers at the State Fair of West Virginia can step into history and have their
pictures taken with the symbols of our state’s heritage and future. 

    At the Secretary of State’s booth, there is a life-size seal display featuring every detail of the Great Seal, down to the red cap of liberty that sits across two muskets. The outer ring of the seal stands seven feet tall. The seal also features a real plow and corn picked from near the fairgrounds in Greenbrier County. 

    Secretary of State Natalie E. Tennant encourages everyone who passes by the booth to step inside the seal and have their picture taken. 

    People can also find out more about all the services offered by the Secretary of State’s Office. There is information on how to start a business in West Virginia, tips for charitable giving, and reminders of important dates for the United States Senate special election. 

    The Secretary of State’s booth is located in the West Virginia room at the state fairgrounds. 

    The fair wraps up on Saturday, August 21.
