Society for the Preservation of McGrew House
The Society for Preservation of McGrew House is a non-profit organization, which began informally in 1989 as a dedicated group of community volunteers in Kingwood, West Virginia. It achieved formal, legal 501-C-3 status in 1993.
Its primary purpose and accomplishments extend from preserving and restoring the 1841 home of West Virginia forefather Hon. James C. McGrew and making that home an educational and cultural center, emphasizing the historical pre-Civil War period, the creation of the State of West Virginia, and the cultural and economic development of Preston County.
Toward those ends, the Society annually sponsors events that celebrate West Virginia’s heritage and involves community members in programs that acknowledge academic excellence, artistic talent, and cultural growth.
The Society is led by its annually elected officers and Board of Directors, who serve in rotating three-year terms. The Board meets on the third Wednesday of each month; its General Meeting is held annually in October.
The Society welcomes contributions of all types–volunteers to help with Events, donations to our Collections, help in Gift Shoppe, ideas for historical programs, and, most important of all, new members who can assist in maintaining the McGrew House. Won’t you Join Us in that cause? You may also reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
