HINTON, WV (WVNS) — As part of its master plan, the city of Hinton is looking to re-purpose the abandoned freight depot on Commercial Drive into an amphitheater. Once finished, the $400,000 dollar project will be able to seat 500 people for outdoor concerts and performances. City manager Cris Meadows is excited to see how young students in its surrounding schools will be able to utilize the stage.

“Everybody loves to go see those kids,” Meadows said.  “They’re really talented, and I think that will be a perfect outdoor venue for some of their attractions.”

The city has filed for a $10,000 Flexi-grant, which if approved will help pay towards engineer drawings.  As of January 11, 2018, there are no set dates on the start of construction for the amphitheater.
