CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - You would hardly notice them if you didn't know they were there. The postcards tucked into a display stand near the entrance to Stuck & Alger Pharmacy in downtown Charles Town are not the new type that you would typically find in a pharmacy. These date as far as the 1940s. The postcards offer glimpses of historic structures in Jefferson County, like the Charles Town Turf Club, now known as Charles Town Races & Slots, the Jefferson County Courthouse and Claymont Court, a stately mansion south of Charles Town that was built in 1820 by Bushrod Washington, a great nephew of first U.S. President George Washington.
