West Virginia Squares

This exhibit looks at square dance traditions in the Mountain State. West Virginia is small, but conrains rich square dance traditions. Elkins, WV, in the center of the state, home of Davis and Elkins College and also the Augusta Heritage Center, lies near the dividing line: to the east, communities have long traditions of dancing southern Appalachian big circle dances, while to the west it's four-couple squares.
