1928 - Alderson High School - 1968

 

 

History of Alderson High School and Alderson West Virginia

If you were around to read the printed Aldersonian, you know the paper wasn't all about the high school. It also included a bit 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 some 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.
