Welcome to the St. Albans Historical Society, West Virginia site!


   

The St. Albans Historical Society, in St. Albans, West Virginia, welcomes you to its website. Please use the information and resources presented here to enhance your knowledge of the history of the St. Albans community.

Purpose of the Society:

   The St. Albans Historical Society was founded in 1972 initially to move and preserve the ca. 1846 log Morgan's Kitchen Museum which was in danger of being demolished. The Society has since expanded to promote an understanding of the history of St. Albans and to collect and preserve materials relating to the town's history, to encourage the education of children in this history and to make these materials available to the public. The Society maintains a museum at 404 Forth Ave., adjacent to the C&O Depot, with displays that include many vintage photos, books and artifacts. The rich archives  can be valuable for persons seeking family history or doing historical studies.

   Morgan's Kitchen, operated by the St. Albans Historical Society, located on MacCorkle Ave. near Walnut St., contains many pioneer artifacts from the 19th and 20th century.
