WVU Retirees Planning Trip to the Palace of Gold

Friday, June 29, 2018

The WVU Retirees Association has decided to take a step out of the ordinary and visit the Palace of Gold, hidden in the hills of Moundsville, WV.  But first, we’ll travel to the West Virginia Penitentiary for a 90-minute guided tour. 

The penitentiary tour will consist of an astonishing history, a touch of art, cold hard facts, and insight into the justice system.  Time Magazine says, “Unlike most of the people who’ve previously walked through the gates of the West Virginia Penitentiary in Moundsville, you can be fairly certain you’ll be walking out again a few hours later…”  

At the Palace of Gold we will have a guided tour of the interior of the palace where you will learn about the history and view breath-taking marble from around the world, antiques, original artworks, handcrafted teakwood, gold and more.
