The WVRHC collects, preserves, and provides public access to materials that show the history and culture of West Virginia and the central Appalachian region.  With over 20,000 linear feet (that's over 3.7 miles of shelf space) of primary source material (including personal papers, photographs, pamphlets, business records, and more), multiple terabytes of digital content, books, microfilm, audio recordings, and more, there is always something new to discover!  We invite you to explore our collections, in person or online.
