Area Information

Milton CMP

Milton, home of world-famous Blenko Glass, was incorporated in September 1876 when completion of a covered bridge opened the town to traffic from the James River and Kanawha Turnpike. The picturesque covered bridge sets the tone at Pumpkin Park, home of the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival and the Cabell County Fair.

Union Baptist Church  (f. 1788, ca. 1849)
1295 James River and Kanawha Turnpike
Founded in 1788 as a log structure at the present site of the old Union cemetery. In 1849, the congregation built a new sanctuary on adjacent property, which was restored in 1867, after Union troops used it as a garrison to protect the nearby covered bridge.
