Clarksburg Uptown presented a $1,000 check to the new Clarksburg History Museum on Monday in front of the Harrison County Board of Education. The museum will be located on the second floor of the board of education.
Those on the Clarksburg History Museum’s board said they hope the museum is a place for community members and visitors to come and see special pieces of the county’s history.
“Our main goal is to bring in students from Harrison County and the surrounding counties and hopefully statewide.We want to bring them in for a day long field trip,” said Michael Spatafore, committee chairperson.
Spatafore added that our county has a lot of history from the civil war and from the B&O Railroad that went right through Clarksburg.
