Old Fayetteville School May Be Repurposed

Fayetteville officials are working to preserve and repurpose a stone building that once served as the town's high school. Town Superintendent Bill Lanham tells The Register-Herald that the goal is to transform the old Fayetteville High School into a cultural, arts and education center. Lanham says the town is accepting bids to replace the building's roof. The town also has applied to have the building placed on Preservation Alliance of West Virginia's endangered properties list which would help obtain grants and other funding. The building has been vacant since 2004 and the town acquired it in 2011.
