History of Alderson High School and Alderson West Virginia

Since the Aldersonian was a school newspaper, it wasn't all about the high school. It also included news of what was going on in Alderson. Here on the Aldersonian web site, not only do we have the history of Alderson Schools, we have current news and town history going back to when the Alderson area was just a settlement. So starting in 1777, there's a lot to read. You better get started.
