U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree makes Charleston stop

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The 80-foot-tall white spruce that will stand soon in front of the U.S. Capitol took up a lot of space Monday evening near the Town Center Mall in Charleston.

The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree is making its way to the west lawn of the capitol. It began its journey Oct. 29 when it was felled in the Cheppewa National Forest in Minnesota.

A large crowd walked around the truck Monday evening in Charleston and attended a mini-ceremony put on by the city. Residents were able to sign the side of the truck.

After Charleston, the tree was headed to Marietta, Ohio, and then to Wheeling.
