150 Years Later: The Founding of Storer College

Through artifacts and photographs of students and faculty, this display celebrates the 150th anniversary of the founding of Storer College in 1867, the first West Virginia college open to African Americans.

During its 88-year history, the college educated thousands of black students, many of them from Jefferson County.
