Memorial to Karl Myers, First Poet Laureate of West Virginia, Moore Cemetery, Tucker County, W. Va.
Myers was West Virginia Poet Laureate from 1927 to 1937. His remains are buried in an unknown grave in an IOOF cemetery near Elkins. The people of Tucker County, determined to honor Myers, raised money to place this monument near the Myers family graves in Moore Cemetery. A bucket of dirt from the immediate area of where Karl Myers is thought to be buried was placed in his plot with the monument.
