The Family History Center Museum on Main St., Grantsville, will be open on Friday, Aug. 6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There are new displays of Grantsville native Hovah Hall Underwood, including the gown wore during her wedding to the late former Gov. Cecil Underwood.

Underwood was elected governor of West Virginia in 1956 and in 1996, and is the youngest and oldest governor to serve the Mountain State.

Hovah Underwood, who died in 2004, married Cecil on July 25, 1948, at Knotts Memorial United Methodist Church, Grantsville.

Their 56-year marriage produced two sons and one daughter. Hovah had also been a teacher at Grantsville Graded School.

Also on display will be Indian arrowheads collected by Emory Smith, and miscellaneous tools and appliances.

The public is invited to check out the showcase windows that feature a one-room school and early Little Kanawha riverboats.

Heritage Village, located at Calhoun County Park, will be open on Thursday, Aug. 12, and Saturday, Aug. 28, from 1 to 3 p.m. Special tours can be arranged by calling Terry Harris, 354-7263, or Bob Bonar, 354-7507.

Family History Center Museum and Heritage Village are projects of Calhoun Historical Society.
