Veterans Memorial Park

   Nicholas County Veterans' Memorial Park began as a large, local farm. In the early 1940s, it was donated to the county with the stipulation that it be used to honor our World War II Veterans and for recreation for our children.

   Today, it is used in a variety of ways for our community. The Nicholas County Fair is held annually the second week of July. 2009 marks the 85th year of the fair. The historic Red Barn is original to the park and grounds the small amphitheatre with a large shelter for picnicking. The Nicholas County 4-H holds its annual week long camp at NCVMP in June and has serviced approximately 64 years of children and young adults.

   The park houses 2 baseball fields, a girl’s softball field, and a t-ball field which entertains hundreds of children and parents in the typical spring baseball season. With the wonderful central location of Summersville, the park has been a great draw for annual state baseball and softball tournaments.

We invite you to bring the whole church, business office, or organization to Nicholas County and stay at our park. It is economical and close to everything you wish to experience. Whether you are a corporation, wedding, special event, family reunion, Christian organization or just want to get away for the weekend with the kids, we can assist your every movement. As a county park we wish to provide a great way for you to join us in making a memorable experience.
