Not All Traditions Are Age-Old

One exciting fundraiser for Adaland is the Annual Supporter Tag Sale. Adaland Mansion is always looking for donations to help preserve the mansion and property. All sales from our tag sale support various upkeep projects around the beautiful Mansion.

Even today the house and surrounding structures still feel the effects of those 20 vacant years as part of the coal company and the general passage of time. The difficulty with combining modern comforts with an old building is the careful balance of adding without changing the basic spirit or design of the house.

For example, when Judge Robinson installed the boiler and furnace it was difficult “because the water pipes had to be put through the floors, or, on the second floor, encased in wooden boxes in troughs cut into the original brick and plaster walls on the first floor.”

Community donations are the main source of our funding every year. So the publics support of our events including the tag sale are very important to us.

Adaland mansion accepts musical instruments, glassware, furniture, art, and collectibles! Staff are even available for local pick-up! Please contact Mellanee at 304-669-0645 for local pick-up and setting a time to drop off your unwanted items.
