The Museum is accepting donations from area residents and the 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 entreprenuers 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.
The Museum also includes uniforms of area veterans and their pictures. We honor area veterans each year in a special program.
