The West Virginia State Senate authorized the creation of a Tucker County Cultural District Authority in 2013 with the goal of, “preserving and advancing Tucker County’s culture.” It is currently the only countywide Cultural District Authority east of the Mississippi River. The organization works to promote the county’s art, music, history, recreation and planning opportunities for longtime locals and visitors alike.
