Photography documenting historic resources in southern West Virginia will be on display at the Tamarack arts center off I-77 at Beckley through the end of October, according to Jodi French-Burr, ranger for the New River Gorge National River.

Thirty-nine images submitted by amateur photographers captured hidden and not-so-hidden elements of southern West Virginia’s heritage, according to Burr, an organizer of the Hidden History Photography Contest sponsored annually by the National Park Service and the National Coal Heritage Area.

"This contest gives participants a chance to share their love of history through the lens of a camera," says French-Burr. "These photos tell parts of our region’s rich history through images."

Many of these images highlight state and national parks of southern West Virginia and in the region's National Coal Heritage Area.
