Virginia – An event and conference center is planned near the Elkins Railyard in Randolph County. The 28,000-square-foot facility is estimated at $11.6 million. The building will serve as a conference and events center as well as a workforce development facility.
The multi-purpose facility will feature a theater environment for various performances and open areas designed to host workforce development sessions, trade shows and business conferences.
The Randolph County Development Authority (Authority) and the West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office are collaborating on the design phase. The Authority is also working to secure funding for the increased costs associated with the expansion. The goal is to seek construction bids in early 2024 and start work later that year.
