Anstead Family Reunion 2000!

This year, the reunion will be held in Berkeley Springs, WV the weekend of August 18-19, 2000. For those of you who remember, this is the same location we used in 1998. Faye, Margaret, Roy and Leo will host the reunion! Many thanks to all of them for their willingness to volunteer!

The following provides you some information about Berkeley Springs and it's surroundings:

Cacapon Resort State Park (about 9 miles outside of town) has many great features to keep most everyone busy all weekend, while at the same time being close enough to town for those who prefer the comforts of shopping and sightseeing. Cacapon Resort State Park is a 6,000-acre retreat offering a wide range of recreational activities. Twenty-seven miles of leisure-to-challenging hiking and bridle trails pass through forests to scenic vistas atop Cacapon Mountain. Take a guide ride on horseback through the park. Guests may swim, fish for bass and trout and rent row and paddleboats at Cacapon Lake. Various games including tennis and volleyball are available. Guests can participate in the park's year-round nature and recreation program through guided hikes, slide shows, movies and craft workshops. The golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, has been rated as one of the 130 best-designed courses in the country.

The Town of Berkeley Springs Berkeley Springs, West Virginia offers many places to visit. The town began as a spa. Visitors can receive all types of spa treatments, including massages and trips to the Roman Baths. In recent years, numerous craft and antique shops have sprouted up in town. One could easily spend hours looking at all they have to offer. One of the most fascinating features of the town, in my opinion, is the Berkeley Springs Castle. Yes, that's right, a castle right in the middle of Berkeley Springs! Though it may not rival the castles of Europe, it is still a site to see -- built in to the mountain overlooking the town. Legend tells that the castle was built by a young man to show his love towards his intended bride. In the evening, you may want to visit the Star Theater, one of the few remaining old-time design movie houses on the East Coast. The Star shows recent releases.
