West Virginia Capitol dome in Charleston

When my husband was a small boy he travelled to Charleston with his family to get an operation on his sister’s fingers. The capitol dome gleaming bright gold really made an impression on him. He moved to Elkton, Maryland, and his homeroom teacher asked if anyone knew the capital of West Virginia.  He immediately put his hand up and proudly said, “Charleston.” His teacher told him that was incorrect, that it was Huntington.  She even asked him to go down the hall and check with another techer and that teacher also said it was Huntington.  Were they surprised when they found out that my husband was right!  He was a bright boy.
