1928 - Alderson High School - 1968


A Suggested Map Of Proposal

Barry Worrell - April 1, 2012


In the above photo you can see the sky blue line, which is the present border for Summers County. While going in a north-east direction, it take a sharp turn northward to where it again goes north west, bypassing Alderson.

This photo shows an artist's (me) conception of a possible position of the original border line (the red line) that was mapped out in the Act of the Legislature in 1871 between Summers and Greenbrier Counties. This route would not encompassed all of Alderson today, however in 1894 would have gotten most of it. Who knows? Some of us might have been from Summers County, instead of Greenbrier or Monroe.
