Alderson West Virginia:
History Highlights and Tantalizing Tidbits
Why does Alderson have a leash law for lions? Who is Bricktop? What famous people have stayed at the Alderson Federal Prison Camp? Were there ever any train wrecks in Alderson? These questions and many more are answered in a new little booklet recently released on the history of Alderson.
The booklet was commissioned by Alderson Main Street and written by Belinda Anderson. She did extensive research to find interesting stories about Alderson. The booklet has numerous fun facts and pictures.
Alderson Main Street President Betty Thomas said, “This booklet has generated a lot of excitement. It presents some of Alderson’s history in small bites and in a very entertaining way.”
Anderson discovered so much information and so many great stories that Alderson Main Street has decided to create a new volume each year.
