Built in 1882, the Weston Colored School was the fourth school erected with public funds for black children in West Virginia. It served the African-American community until desegregation in 1954. Later uses included a vocational agriculture classroom, a school for the developmentally challenged, a genealogy and history library, and a welcome center for Weston and Lewis County. The mission style facade is unique for Weston, while the wrought-iron fence is a remnant of many found here. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
