The Treasure Mt. Festival is Pendleton County's annual celebration of its unique mountain culture. It is a heritage of shared history, customs and dialect, which evolved from the early 1700s, when this area was the frontier wilderness for settlers seeking land.

This is how it came to be that even today remnants of old-time culture and traditions can still be found, alive and well, serving to remind us of the ingenuity and communal spirit of our forebears.
