LEWISBURG, W. Va (WVVA)-- Media was invited to a deed signing for The Blue Sulphur Springs Pavilion on Tuesday.

Mrs. Rebecca Fleshman Lineberry donated the pavilion and two acres of land to the Greenbrier Historical Society (GHS).  She and GHS Board President Margaret Hambrick signed the deed at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday at the law office of Jesse Guills in Lewisburg.
 
The historical society said the pavilion was built along with the rest of the Blue Sulphur Springs Resort in 1834.  

After its resort business declined, it served briefly as a Baptist Seminary before the Civil War caused its closure. Both the North and South used it for a hospital during the war and Union troops burned all but the pavilion when they left the area. What was left of the resort was reclaimed by the Buster family and was in the possession of Bernard H. Buster when he sold it to Lewis A. Fleshman on April 24, 1964.  Mrs. Lineberry inherited it from her father.
 
The Greenbrier Historical Society said in a press release they are  grateful to Mrs. Lineberry for her generous gift to the people of the Greenbrier Valley through GHS. 

While the Pavilion will not be immediately available to visitors because of the need to restore it and for safety, the society said it looks forward to the day when it is a destination for a Sunday afternoon drive or an ice cream social.
