Bulletin Board: Dec. 3, 2019


Carbide camp exhibit

The South Charleston Interpretive Center is working to preserve memories of the Carbide camps (Cliffside, Carlisle, Camelot and, yes, Brookside) as part of its new exhibit, “Chemical Valley: Union Carbide and the Shaping of the Kanawha,” with funding from the West Virginia Humanities Council. As part of our new permanent exhibit at the Interpretive Center, located on D Street next to the LaBelle Theatre, they are recording audio (and video, for those who live in the area) of Carbide employees and campers to help build a repository of Carbide memories for future generations. If interested, call or email to set up an interview between now and Dec. 22 with the South Charleston Interpretive Center at 304-720-9847 or mound@cityofsouthcharleston.com.
