Home of Glenville High School until 1956,
it was located on the hill near Glenville State College. The building was situated where there is
now a parking lot, between the new Goodwin Hall dormitory and the new Mollohan
Student Union Building. The concrete stairs that led from the back door toward Rt. 33/119 are still in place. Click on the photo for a larger

Old GHS Steps
from Margaret Miller Goodwin
Goodwin, Class of 1948, has advised
that Glenville State College intends to repair the old GHS steps and
add a handrail for use by students. Some have suggested erecting
some type of a plaque, flag pole, or other monument in remembrance
of the old Glenville High School. Dick Barrett, class of 1950, originally brought it
up at our reunion banquet a couple of years ago and made an
impassioned plea that the steps be preserved. Recently Tom Ratliff,
from GSC, contacted Margaret and stated that it was GSC's intention
to repair the steps, including railings, install some lighting and
connect them with the sidewalk that comes down the hill in front of
Goodwin Hall. The college has agreed to pay for the repair and
upgrade, but the GHSAA would be responsible for whatever we decide
to erect in memory of Glenville High School. Margaret Ann
reminisced that her father worked for the Works Progress
Administration (WPA) and helped build those
steps. GSC President Pete Barr and his wife Betsy have told
Margaret they will personally donate to this project. We are open
to suggestions about what would be an appropriate memorial. Please
forward any suggestions you might have to Richard "Dick" Riddle, 324
E. 7th St., Weston, WV 26452 or Margaret Ann Goodwin, P.O. Box 40,
Montezuma, OH 45866. Please do so as soon as possible as we would
like to make a decision and get the project underway.
