Weston Gold Robbery Days


category : Other Events
A Civil War Reenactment of one of the most important events in West Virginia's history will be held Saturday, June 24, 2006. On June 30, 1861, $27,000 (approximately a half a million dollars today) in gold was robbed from a Weston Bank and used for the Reorganized government of Virginia at Wheeling. This money paved the way for the new state's admission to the Union during the Civil War.
