The Jubilee will continue a celebration of Appalachian Heritage at Jackson’s Mill West Virginia. Located just North of Weston off State Route 19, this festive occasion takes place on the beautiful rolling farmland of Lewis County, which was once home to Confederate Civil War General Stonewall Jackson.

For the young at heart, in Kids Land you can Climb The Wall, learn how to Mine for Gemstones, get your Face Painted, listen to a professional Story Teller, or create your own Sand Art project among a host of ‘fun things’ to do.
