West Virginia Officials Encourage Motorcoach Tours

Posted on November 8, 2013

CUMBERLAND, W.Va. — Officials from private, nonprofit and governmental agencies are continuing an effort to re-establish Allegany and Garrett County as well as the Potomac Highlands area of West Virginia as a popular destination for motor coach tourism.

Evan Slonaker, executive director of the Allegany County Historical Society, who helps to operate several historic sites including the Gordon-Roberts House at 218 Washington St., spoke about the changes that have occurred in motor coach tourism.

“We used to have (at the Gordon-Roberts House) three to four buses visit on a single day. Now we might get 10 to 15 all season,” said Slonaker.

Slonaker said a season is April to October.

Efforts are under way to bring back the once thriving bus tourism industry.

“We need to get the word out and let people know we are still here,” said Vicki Koch, the owner of Westmar Tours.

Koch said the benefits to the local economy and the service it provides in promoting the attractions and the history are invaluable.
