Parsons High School (former) – Parsons WV

Description

Built circa 1938, the Parsons High School was project number 1252-F of the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works. It stopped being a high school around 1981, but it didn’t stop serving the community. Today, it provides space for the Tucker County Board of Education, the Tucker County Family Resources Network, and the Tucker County Historical Society.
