County leaders are looking for close to half a milion dollars, to build a new access road to Fort Boreman Hill.
That site, where Corridor D construction is currently under way, is being seen as Wood County's next popular historical tourism site.
"This would be another reason for people to come here," says Steve Nicely, president of the Wood County Visitors and Convention Bureau, "to spend their dollars, to enjoy themselves, to create jobs, to make this a better place to live."
Wood County leaders are hoping Fort Boreman will be the site of a historical park.
"And, with the interest in the Civil War," Nicely says, " this is the premier Civil War site, not only in Wood County, but in this part of West Virginia."
The county last spring received $100,000 to develop the site.
