Join us as we Honor our Veterans
Volunteers from the WVU Parkersburg Arts Club, Veterans Corps and campus community will gather at the Poorhouse Cemetery to honor Veterans Day and the veterans buried on the grounds.
The Poorhouse Cemetery inters veterans from World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the American War for Independence. Some tombstones have Army, Navy or Marine Corps seals and emblems but do not indicate in which wars the Veterans served.
American flags will become permanent fixtures on 17 graves. More veterans may be buried in the cemetery, but there are no indicators on their tombstones.
