Demolition of Historic Buildings Questioned at WVSU
Preservation groups want to put a stop to it, but West Virginia State University is moving ahead with campus renovations on some of its oldest buildings. A new residence hall is in the works at WVSU, but in that process, Gore and Prillerman halls would be demolished. The Charleston Gazette reports they're eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia and The Kanawha Valley Historical & Preservation Society have asked the school to stop the demolition.
