In this first episode of Season 3, James and Jerry journey to Mineral County, West Virginia.  Why Mineral County?  This is where the city of Fort Ashby is located and home to the Ashby's Fort Museum.  After taking in this historical location built during the French and Indian War, we had the fantastic opportunity to interview Randy Crane who is a volunteer curator for the museum.   What we found out on our visit was, although it is a small-town museum, it provides a wealth of information to any and all who visit. For more information about the location, hours of operation, and directions we have attached their website.  Simply click this link for quick access to their site: Fort Ashby.
