Camp Allegheny nominated for most endangered sites list

MONTEREY – The 400-foot wind turbines planned for private property on Allegheny Mountain are a threat to the historic battlefield nearby, says Highlanders for Responsible Development.

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle at Camp Allegheny, a Civil War site listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1990.

HRD, a grassroots group of citizens formed initially in response to the planned industrial wind energy project in Highland, has nominated the battlefield for the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of America’s 11 most endangered historic places.

Camp Allegheny lies in Pocahontas County, W.Va., about a mile from the Highland County site where H.T. “Mac” McBride of Harrisonburg, owner of Highland New Wind Development LLC, hopes to erect two arrays of towers for a 38-megawatt utility.

HNWD first introduced its plans in 2002; since then, the beleaguered company has been embroiled in controversy. HNWD has yet to make much progress beyond minor site work.

The National Trust is a private, nonprofit organization; its “most endangered” list raises public awareness about threats to important places nationwide, HRD explained this week.

Camp Allegheny has previously been listed on the Civil War Trust’s list of most endangered battlefields, in 2009 and again last year.
