Few People Know About These Creepy Mummies Hiding In West Virginia

West Virginia has plenty of spooky spots with strange stories around the state. There’s no shortage of ghost stories and mysterious happenings. But few people know about the mummies that are tucked away in a little railway station in small-town Philippi, West Virginia.

The Barbour County Historical Museum is located at 146 N Main St, Philippi, WV. Hours are limited, and typically only open some weekend hours, so call 304-457-4846 to check availability before a visit. The museum is free, but accepts donations.

Philippi has more than just mummies… it also has a historic covered bridge! See the Philippi covered bridge and other beautiful covered bridges in West Virginia here.
