GLEN JEAN -- The hidden history photo contest is a
collection that displays the cultural significance of this region for both visitors
Officials say that anyone can capture any stories of the
past with a creative eye and a camera, sharing the diverse history preserved in
southern West Virginia’s national and state parks. Each image will reveal a
glimpse of our culture, ranging from family traditions to national legacies.
Robin Snyder, of the New River Gorge,
says “the whole idea behind the contest is to get people out and about
exploring the rich cultural sites and history of the state of West Virginia and
particularly looking at sites in their own backyard here in the national park
The hidden history photo contest will be included in the
hidden history weekend which takes place from September 26-28.
