Filled with music and fun, the Summer Brew and Wine Fest has become a mainstay of the Town of Beverly and the largest annual fundraiser for the preservation and restoration of Beverly’s Historic Downtown District, which is currently focused on restoring the 1841 Jail. Restoration of the jail’s porch was completed in July and plans are now in motion to restore the interior.


The third Randolph County Jail was completed in 1845 and included accommodations for the jailer's family, three cells, and an iron cage used for dangerous prisoners. Even after the courthouse was moved to Elkins, this jail remained the official county jail until the new one was built in Elkins in 1913.
