Clarksburg History Museum

RG at CHM

Mark your calendars! The Clarksburg History Museum will now be open on the first full weekend of every month. The Clarksburg History Museum is located on the second floor of the Harrison County Board of Education Building in Clarksburg, a space that was graciously donated by the Harrison County Board of Education.

“The Clarksburg History Museum educates and inspires all people to discover, explore, and strengthen their connections to our city and Harrison County and its diverse heritage”, mission statement of the Clarksburg History Museum.

The Clarksburg History Museum highlights the history of the City of Clarksburg and surrounding areas from the time of the Woodland Indians through the present. Artifacts accompanied by other historical items will be used to tell the story of Clarksburg and its rich historical past. The museum features various exhibits, historical displays, celebration of the City of Clarksburg in various other ways.

Currently, the Clarksburg History Museum is featuring various displays on the Harrison County Sherriff’s Department, Steptoe and Johnson,LLP, the City of Clarksburg, medical tools from the 1930s donated by United Hospital Center, Clarksburg Police Captain Stealey’s uniform from the 1900s, a German Bible from 1776, and so much more. March’s feature exhibit was on Tommy Thomas, local boxer and Clarksburg City Policeman. The display will continue to be featured at the Clarksburg History Museum. The feature exhibit for the month of April will be on the history of medicine in Clarksburg.

The Harrison County Historical Society has been a major contributor to the Clarksburg History Museum and helped bring it to fruition. Many of the contents from the Harrison County Historical Society’s Stealey-Goff-Vance House have now displayed thanks to the Clarksburg History Museum.  The Harrison County Historical Society will be joining the Clarksburg History Museum in the Board of Education, which will allow both organizations to work more cohesively with one another, providing additonal fundraising opportunities to both organizations.  The Harrison County Historical Society will feature an exhibit titled “Year of the Woman” in August 2019.

The Clarksburg History Museum was originated after the Museum board chairman, Michael Spatafore took interest in the rich history of Clarksburg, and wanted to make that history known to the public. The overall goal for the Museum is to be a field trip destination for school children and a stop for West Virginia tourists. The Clarksburg History Museum is funded solely on donations


The Clarksburg History Museum invites all local residents, businesses and history enthusiasts to come and visit Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th from 12p.m.-4p.m. on the second floor of the Harrison County Board of Education located at 445 West Main Street, Clarksburg.
