Charity Information

About Arthurdale Heritage, Inc.:
For over thirty years Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. (AHI) has worked to preserve the history of the nation’s first New Deal Homestead Community, started under the Roosevelt Administration. AHI was created by volunteers, many of whom were original homesteaders, to preserve their family and community history.  AHI has since become  essential to maintaining northern West Virginia’s economy through tourism and promoting education about the Depression Era.

More Information

Run, walk, or roll through Arthurdale’s beautiful historic district dotted with original New Deal homes and gallop past the homestead goats! The goats will be cheering you on. Visit the historic grounds, run and play with our goats, and join us to celebrate the homestead life with the whole family. Goat yoga may be taking the internet by storm, but we think running with goats will be the next big trend.

Join us after the races for other fun family activities including playing with the goats, games for kids, and much more. Healthy snacks and refreshments to recharge your body will be provided.
