Mozier elected president of board for Scenic Byway

June 21, 2005

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The board of trustees of the Washington Heritage Trail National Scenic Byway recently selected Jeanne Mozier of Berkeley Springs, W.Va., to serve as president of the trail's governing body.

Mozier has been a member of the board since October 2002 and is a travel writer and award-winning tourism promoter.

In 2003, Mozier received a Stars of Industry award from the West Virginia Division of Tourism for exceptional promotion on a minimal budget.

"The board is anticipating Jeanne using her well-known magic to increase the notoriety of the Washington Heritage Trail," Sally Marshall, who has served as a trail trustee since its formation in 1998, said in a news release.

The Washington Heritage Trail association recently moved into a suite of rooms in the newly restored Caperton Hotel on East Martin Street in Martinsburg. Plans are under way to develop a welcome exhibit for the entire 136-mile trail in this location.


"There are several grant-funded projects that I hope to see completed within the next year," said Mozier. She cited plans for the welcome exhibit at the Caperton Hotel, a detailed map-guide of the trail and development of a trailwide interpretive plan. Recently, interpretive signs for 10 sites along the trail in Morgan County and Shepherdstown, W.Va., were erected using grant funds.

"The trail includes more than 40 sites including the best historical and scenic attractions of the three county region," said Mozier. "Showcasing them to the public is an exciting task."
