The Harrison County Historical Society is in the midst of moving to its new space inside the Harrison County Board of Education building.
The historical society made its home on the fifth floor of the Chase Bank Building in Clarksburg for the last four years, but is now moving to a larger space. Volunteers and staff are busy moving over artifacts and records to their new home on the first floor of the Harrison County Board of Education Building.
Executive director Crystal Wimer asks that the public be patient with requests and donations until the move is complete.
“As far as research requests and artifact donations, maybe hold off on those until we get the new space opened up on the 29th of April and feel free to call me, come visit me and we’ll gladly take those things,” Wimer said.
Wimer says the office was donated for use by Harrison County Schools Superintendent Mark Manchin, and the new location will allow the historical society to better serve the public.
