Time Travelling with JCCM

Many people know that Charles Town WV was founded by George Washington’s younger brother, Charles in the 1780’s.

But, fewer know that the JCCM building used to be a …. JCPenney!

One of our hardworking volunteers, Katie, has spent the last few month’s researching the building history. She visited the museum, mined social media and scoured the landscape for information. The result is the¬†timeline of the building you see here.

She did wonderful work. But, we’re still looking for a picture from the 1970’s of the Penney’s building. Please contact us if you have one in an album someplace.

Thanks Katie!
