Bulltown Historic District1 Burnsville Lake Rd.; Burnsville Lake / Army Corps of Engineers, HC 10 Box 24, Burnsville
Take a trip back in time at the Bulltown Historical Village to get a taste of life during the Civil War era. This spot occupies the site of a Civil War battle, where reenactments of the historic event take place twice a year.
In 1863, Confederate forces led by William L. "Mudwall" Jackson, cousin of "Stonewall" Jackson, attempted to overtake Union fortifications on a knoll overlooking a key bridge that once crossed the Little Kanawha River along the Weston-Gauley Bridge Turnpike. At the hilly site are Union trenches, the graves of seven Confederate soldiers and intact sections of the Weston-Gauley Turnpike.
