Historical Society Events History

2002 Fulton Fall Folk Festival

Fall Meeting - Antique flintlock rifles from Fulton and surrounding counties were discussed at the fall meeting of the Fulton County Historical Society on Friday, October 18, 2002, at 7:00 p.m., in the former Fulton Theater on North Second Street in McConnellsburg, during the Fulton Fall Folk Festival. The muzzle-loading long rifles were made and used in this area in the early 1800s. A group of area enthusiasts not only showed and talked about the rifles, they will also gave a demonstration of loading and firing. The rifles were on display only at this evening meeting, which was free and open to the public. Second Annual House Tour - Another ten of Fulton County's historic buildings were open to the public on Saturday and Sunday between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. Once again, the ticket price benefited the work of the Historical Society. Fulton House Museum Display - This year during the Festival weekend the Fulton House displayed a collection of flax and spinning wheels, yarn winders, accessories, and various handmade textiles. Most items were loaned and were on display for the first time.
