Thank you, so much Patty, for taking time to reply.
Do you know who owns the building now?
I am a former student from back in the '60's and it was indeed a beautiful building. Simply acres of oak flooring and solid oak doors and cornice mouldings, and a beautiful 2 story stained glass window on the central stairway and years and years of memories while attending school there.
Also, I remember how friendly everyone was to us in the town of Alderson. Most of us,(the students), came there from other states to attend the Baptist High School,(and some students, like me, were there on work scholarships to pay for our tuition and part of our job was to take care of the building, so some of us, more that others, got "up close and personal" with the whole building LOL), but it helped so much that the town folks in Alderson and Lewisburg treated us, for the most part, like anyone else in their hometown and that helped soothe our being homesick.
I remember the beautiful Greenbriar River and how clear the water was,(when it wasn't flooding... LOL) and I remember many long hikes up Muddy Creek Mountain in some of the most beautiful country in the world.
You spoke of your boys playing basketball in the gym; even back in the '60's the gym was in sad shape, but it didn't take us long to figure out which planks in the flooring would stop the ball cold. LOL
I have one more question I hope you, or someone there in Alderson who may know, can answer for me.
Do you know if the school records from the students who attended school there for decades are keep somewhere in the school system in Alderson?
Again I thank you.
Take care and stay warm!
