Recognizing the history of Parkersburg.

The Washington Avenue Historical Society held a ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday for the installation of commemorative pillars and two time capsules.

They were put in along Washington and Dudley Avenue.

The group's mission is to promote and preserve regional history.

"This street is kind of what Parkersburg is all about in many ways. So we were delighted to finally be in a position to build what had been a dream for many years. This street is not just of historical interest. It's of community interest," says John Swales, with Washington Avenue Historical Society.

Along with the public organizers invited Wood County Commissioners and Senator David Nohe.
