The Bice-Ferguson Museum became a reality in 2006, thanks to the vision of two former residents, Don and Lota (Ferguson) Bice. When the Museum opened, there was an extensive collection of antique telephones and furniture that were donated by this generous couple. They also bought the building and paid for the remodeling of the First National Bank Building. The Museum is accepts donations from area residents and displays are beginning to change to reflect the history of Shinnston and surrounding communities…The railroads, pottery, coal mining, oil wells and mills all played a part in shaping the history of the community. There were entrepreneurs who started factories and exported products. And let us not forget the churches of all denominations that were an integral part of the city. Clay District High School (later called Shinnston High School) memorabilia is housed in the Shinnston High School Alumni room on the second floor.
