🏒 Returning to Our Roots: A 50-Year Journey
In 1973, The Augusta Heritage Center began its journey in downtown Elkins, laying the foundation for the celebration of Appalachian culture. Now, in our 50th year, we are thrilled to announce our return to the heart of Elkins. The Wilt Building, a historic landmark, is set to be redeveloped into a vibrant hub of cultural activity. All funds raised during this event will play a pivotal role in Augusta’s mission to transform downtown Elkins into a destination for Appalachian culture, music, dance, folklore, and more!

Be prepared for a musical journey led by the talented Emily Miller and the Augusta “Lift Your Voice Choir.” Immerse yourself in the joyous sounds of Wassailing songs and timeless Christmas Carols that will warm your heart and lift your spirits. The Jesse Milnes Band will then take the stage, filling the air with the lively notes of Honky-Tonk music, and who knows, a few square dances might just break out!
