Volcano, WV: A West Virginia oil boom town

The Friends of Mountwood Park operate a seasonal museum in the Park's visitor center from the first weekend in May through Volcano Days.


There are numerous pictures, documents, memorabilia and artifacts from Volcano.  We also have four working oil rig models and DVDs showing the operation of the endless cable pumping system and three archaeological digs at the Thornhill estate.


It is open every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00; and can be opened for groups on other days.  


You can schedule your group by simply calling 304-485-5365.  This may be expanded to include a driving tour of Volcano, WV and a walking tour of  the Thornhill estate.
