2-story outhouse. West Virginia State Farm Museum

A two-story outhouse, the taxidermied hide of the one-time largest horse in the world, a taxidermied two-headed calf and a bizarre and random collection of other stuffed animals would be reason enough to visit a region, but in West Virginia they can all be seen in one place: The West Virginia State Farm Museum.

I visited a fraction of the museum as a part of The Mothman Tour, and beyond what is already described, there are many interesting artifacts, but those will have to wait for another visit. The purpose of stopping as part of The Mothman Tour is to see the stuffed Sandhill Crane, an animal often suggested as what the Mothman really was.

The museum is located in the original grounds of the old WWII ordnance factory where the Mothman was first seen.

General the horse and family. General, World's Largest Stuffed Horse

This was taken of General in 1978, when he was owned by John Greene of Milton, WV. At that time we lived on the farm where he was kept. We frequently visited General and the children just loved him. He was one of the most gentle horses I have ever encountered. I thought you might want to see General in better days.
