How to Attend: Facebook @The Archaeological Conservancy
5:30 – 6:00 pm MST
We are excited to announce our upcoming Facebook Watch Party in partnership with The West Virginia Land Trust! Join us for the premiere of our new Virtual Tour of Arbuckle’s Fort in West Virginia with special guests Drs. Kim and Stephen McBride on Thursday, January 21 at 5 pm MST (4 pm PST | 6 pm CST | 7 pm EST).
Be the first to experience the tour and join in the conservation with our guest panelists while you watch! Additional panelists will include Ashton Berdine of the West Virginia Land Trust; our Eastern Regional Director Kelley Berliner; and a special introduction by Conservancy President Mark Michel. A special Q&A session will also be held after the premiere.
In 2020, The Archaeological Conservancy partnered with the West Virginia Land Trust and the Greenbrier County Historical Society for a crowdfunding campaign that generated enough funds to acquire and preserve this Revolutionary War era fort site. In Episode 3 of our Virtual Tour Video series, learn more about the site’s history and prehistory, as well as the future plans for the preserve. This episode features exclusive video footage and photos of the McBride’s excavations during the early 2000’s, in addition to images of the numerous artifacts that were discovered there.
The Watch Party will broadcast on The Archaeological Conservancy’s Facebook page at 5 pm MST on January 21, followed by a special After Party on WebEx where you can mingle and discuss the film face-to-face with our panelists.
Space at the After Party is limited. To hold your space, please email tac.connect@gmail with the subject line “After Party”. You’ll be guaranteed a space and receive email reminders and updates for the event.
We look forward to sharing this special site with all of you!
And, a very special thank you to everyone who donated to the #HoldtheFort campaign. This site is now protected and preserved because of your generosity. We hope you enjoy the tour!
