Last week, Fort Warwick in Green Bank hosted a Cal Price Appalachian Enrichment Program archeological dig with students from Green Bank Elementary-Middle School, Pocahontas County High School and Marlinton Middle School participating.

During the dig, Fort Warwick owner Bob Sheets took the students on a tour of the Warwick cemetery and shared the history of the families buried there. Sheets also showed the students his maple sugar shack.
