Sending of Flowers to Grafton, WV

The town is located in Taylor County in West Virginia and has more than six thousand residents. The city is the county seat of Taylor County and was originally established as a junction point for the Ohio and Baltimore Railroad. The railroads served various network branches important to the regional coal mining industry. West Virginia's National Cemeteries are located in the community. The West Virginia Equal Suffrage Association. was formed in the community. Mother's Day was first celebrated in the community and is the home of the International Mother's Day Shrine. The town was among the first communities to observe Memorial Day in the United States. 

The city was established from the early white settlements at the intersection of Tygart Valley River with the Three Fork Creek. Bluemont Cemetery serves the present citizens of the community and has the only grave in the city belonging to a veteran of the Revolutionary War. John Wolverton Blue constructed the Turnpike Railroad from Aurora to the Tygart Valley. Blue took charge of the construction and visited the future site of the city when he lodged overnight with the Current's family. Blue awoke and heard Margaret Current sobbing profusely over the loss of their home, flower, and the vegetable garden because of the planned right-of-way for the road. The city was formerly known as Grafton Junction and was named after John Grafton, a civil engineer.

Parades in the Community

The railroad construction workers called it Grafton because it was the point at which a number of brand railroad lines grafted to the railroad's mainline. That is the origin of the city; from the word "grafted," they used it to form the town's name. Grafton National Cemetery served the city's residents and was officially opened to provide a burial ground for Union soldiers who died in West Virginia's military battlefields and hospitals. The Federal Government selected the city to serve as the national cemetery site because of its proximity to the Maple Avenue Cemetery. Arthur Boreman was the first governor of West Virginia and officially dedicated the national cemetery, which contains more than three thousand interments. Congress made a law authorizing "maintenance and preservation" of the cemetery and observing Memorial Day services at Grafton National Cemetery. The services include a special tradition known as "Flower Strewing Day." The parade is done on Memorial Day in downtown where the children in the city place flowers at each grave marker. An important West Virginia officiates Memorial Day, and all governors who have served in the city speak at The National Cemetery during the program. Tygart Lake State Park served the city's residents and was designed to preserve recreation areas around the lake. Avas Flowers offers delivery to the park and cemetery in the city.
