The theaters of West Virginia have a rich and storied history dating back over 150 years. We encourage you to truly savor your experience on the Historic Theatre Trail by allotting three to four days per region. This will allow you plenty of time to explore each of the theaters and all that the Mountain State has to offer. It’s best to plan your trip based on the charming towns where you’d like to spend the night.
You can also combine your travel on the Historic Theatre Trail with another thematic trail through West Virginia:
- The Mountain Music Trail promotes, presents, and sustains opportunities for engagement in the authentic mountain music traditions of West Virginia.
- The Mountain Dance Trail honors, embraces, and promotes Appalachian old-time dance in its localized forms.
- The West Virginia Historic New Deal / CCC Trail explores the recreation and infrastructure projects that were completed as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs to revitalize the nation’s economy during the Great Depression.
- The West Virginia Civil War Trail identifies more than 150 Civil War sites throughout the state of West Virginia. Each site is interpreted and accessible and encourages you to explore diverse settings where America’s destiny was forged.
