Country Store and Kitchen
West Virginia State Farm Museum
Few people, other than the hard-working volunteer men and women who were actually involved, can know the magnitude of the task of moving the Country Store and Country Kitchen from Milton to the West Virginia State Farm Museum.
Not many people know of the untold hours that followed in "setting up" these buildings, the long hauls to move lumber and logs, and the great number of truck-loads of fill dirt, gravel and stone moved to the museum grounds.
Finally, it would be difficult to number the hours spent in the tasks that followed to complete the interiors and exteriors of the buildings and the extensive filling and leveling of swampy and uneven grounds.
The Country Store is roughly 60 feet long and 16 feet wide, while the Country Kitchen is 40 feet long and 20 feet wide. Another addition was later made to the building.
In the Country Kitchen, the menu includes beans and cornbread, hotdogs, other items, and a rather unusual dessert of cornmeal pie.
