Fall Leaves Tour 2023

October 14, 2023

2023 Fall Leaves Tour

Please join us on October 14 for our Fall Leaves Tour! We will meet at Washington Crown Center Mall, and make our way southwest to Moundsville, West Virginia. Hopefully we will see some scenic fall foliage along the way.

When we reach Moundsville, lunch will be on your own at Mason Dixon BBQ, El Gran Patron Mexican Restaurant, or your choice of other fine eateries in the downtown Moundsville area.

We will all reconvene at 2:00 pm for a tour of West Virginia Penitentiary, a gothic-style prison in Moundsville that operated from 1876 to 1995. The pen has a multitude of things to see, and we will hear numerous interesting stories from the Tour Guides on what went on there for 100-plus years. This tour was extremely popular with the Chapter members when we visited four years ago.

The drive from Washington Crown Center to the Moundsville restaurant area will take about 2.5 hours, with a rest stop, and will be a mix of Spirited and Leisurely driving. The tour is limited to 30 cars and 50 people total (the tour capacity number at the Penitentiary). The cost is $15 per car driver’s fee, and $15 per person for the Penitentiary tour.

We look forward to seeing you on the drive!

Registration will be limited to 30 vehicles.
