Bethany Featured in State Magazine, Goldenseal

Bethany College is featured in the summer 2011 issue of Goldenseal, West Virginia’s magazine of traditional life, published by the Division of Culture and History in Charleston.

The issue contains an article, co-authored by Dr. Mort Gamble and Laura Cramblet, which chronicles the history of the Wellsburg-to-Bethany trolley line. The railway served Brooke County from 1908 through the mid-1920’s.  Several historic photos of the trolley and Bethany from that period are included.

Gamble’s article on circus life in West Virginia was published in the fall 2009 issue of the magazine.
More information on Goldenseal is available at The Culture Center, 1900 Kanawha Boulevard East, Charleston, WV 25305;; phone 304-558-0220.
