Prime Timers Trip: Blennerhassett Island

Blennerhassett Island is a historic state park located on a small island in the Ohio River near Parkersburg, West Virginia. On May 20 we will travel aboard a deluxe motor coach to the Blennerhassett Museum to see some of the priceless, historic relics of the Ohio Valley’s past. Then it is a sternwheeler ride to the island where we will enjoy a box lunch, have a narrated horse-drawn wagon ride and tour the 200 year-old mansion. The Palladian style mansion resembles George Washington’s Mount Vernon and was visited by Aaron Burr. The cost is $70 per person. The deadline to sign up is Monday, April 17.
