“Lights, camera, action!” isn’t something that is usually heard in Grant County Park, until now. Ben Wilt, of Crittenden, is lending his talents to the film industry as he shoots two short films in Grant County.
Wilt, 29, grew up in Shinnston, West Virginia before moving to Crittenden 10 years ago. The conservative coal mining town didn’t leave much room for expression as Wilt’s fondness for films grew.

Edna Cummins has been on a mission to preserve Grant County’s historical sites one brick at a time.
Cummins, of Crittenden, has worked to save and restore old cemeteries and the Lloyd’s Welfare House, but her latest labor of love has been saving Sherman Tavern.
She, and a group of volunteers, have been working diligently for the last five years holding bake sales, yard sales and dinner on the grounds to raise money to restore the tavern on U.S. 25, in front of Sherman Elementary.
