We are a volunteer-based nonprofit that engages with our community by preserving, collecting, educating, and demonstrating the history and culture of Harrison County and North-Central West Virginia.
A priority goal of the Society is the conservation of the Stealey-Goff-Vance House in Clarksburg and preservation of historic property, archives and collections and to make them available to the community through displays and educational activities.
The HCWVHS archive contains the collection of documents, photos, and other items of historic value that are carefully preserved on behalf of the community.
Leaders of the Society actively engage the community by:
• Receiving and preserving historic materials and documents donated by members of the community.
• Developing partnerships with various local government agencies, local organizations, cultural, educational and historic entities.
• Providing opportunities for members of the community to participate in volunteer roles with various projects.
• Providing opportunities for members of the community to view historic materials and learn about their heritage at festivals, fairs, schools and other events.
Our staff and volunteers work Monday-Friday 9-5 at the Neff-Hardesty Memorial Archives. We are a small organization and do are best to be open during those hours but sometimes we are out for events and trainings. We recommended calling or emailing us to insure we will be in the office to assist you.
