Visitors to Adaland Mansion's Heritage Day Celebration in mid September enjoyed bluegrass music, clogging, lots of good food, crafts, and fresh locally grown produce.
Rick Cleavenger and Friends filled the afternoon breezes with the sounds of bluegrass music that had guests tapping their toes. Numerous sets of other toes were active when the Mountaineer State Cloggers of Lewis County took the stage and showed off their fancy footwork.
Shirley Daniels oversaw the food tables for the afternoon and offered guests pulled pork sandwiches and homemade pies in addition to fresh vegetables and cookies.

Visitors to the restored 1870 mansion were able to walk through the mansion and enjoy the old home. Visitors also toured the restored barn where they saw weaving demonstrations by Millie and Gary Goetze and spinning and carding demonstrations by Jada Nelson. The Barbour County Garden Market sold fresh, locally grown produce at the barn and gave away Garden Market gift certificates to five lucky Heritage Day visitors.
"Offering our guests free entertainment against the backdrop of our beautiful home and grounds and the opportunity to enjoy the heritage of our area was a great way for all of us at Adaland Mansion to celebrate our home's heritage," Ann Serafin, acting executive director of Adaland Mansion, said.
"We're so pleased we had such a large group of visitors to our Heritage Day celebration."
