Historic Campbell School - Barbour Co
Located on the campus of Alderson-Broaddus College. (Moved from original location in Volga about 8 miles to the southwest. Most noted alumni - Dr Arch Hall, who performed the first open heart surgery in the US.
Historical Marker (side 1) located on the campus of A-B College. From the turnoff of Rt 119, make the first left onto the campus. Follow the main road around the campus for about 1/2 mile as it loops slowly to the left. At the first stop sign, turn right. The school is about 100 years ahead, in pretty plain view.
Side 2 of the same marker.
View of the school.
View from the rear of the school, looking out to the campus of Alderson-Broaddus College.
The school was locked when I stopped by, so I borrowed this photo of the inside from the Barbour Co Chamber of Commerce website.
