United Hospital Center had a special celebration of their own planned for our state's birthday.
Officials said they were lucky to still have the award winning exhibit Born of Rebellion: West Virginia Statehood for this special day. They cut two big cakes at 1:50 Thursday afternoon to symbolize the 150th birthday.
For the past couple of weeks they had artisans from all over share their talent. The first baby that's born Thursday will get a special gift from Artisans' Crossing Gift Shop. As of, 7:00 Thursday that baby hasn't been born yet.
"I remember being 8 years old being at the centennial celebration of the state. So it's a little bit of full circle to be at the 150th anniversary," said George Brown, 6 year term on W.V. Humanities Council.
"It's been fun, it really has. All these artisans we've had a chance to meet, a chance to watch them make their craft and we've all enjoyed it a lot," said Ida Diem, Manager of Gift Shops at UHC.
No matter how you celebrate. just remember what it means to our beautiful Mountain State.
