The museum is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 1:00 and 4:00 with a $5.00 donation accepted. Currently Room 1 contains sports and music memorabilia from our county’s original high schools: Arthurdale, Aurora, Bruceton, Fellowsville, Kingwood, Masontown-Valley, Newburg,Rowlesburg, Terra Alta and Tunnelton.
Room 2, which is in the process of being organized for next year, will feature county high schools from 1977 to 1991, prior to the formation of Preston High School. These schools include: Bruceton, Central Preston, East Preston, Rowlesburg and West Preston. When completed, the museum will feature all local high schools prior to Preston High School in 1991.
