If it were in an area with growth potential it would not be as big of a risk. Honestly the building will either have to be given away or torn down.

IF there is a Grocery store pharmacy near by & hopefully Bus service. Rent out to the Elderly & Handicap. You may be abe to get Gov Grants to fix it up.

It's part of what old school. I went to West Virginia Tech there in the late 70's. I thought that they took a couple of those buildings down. Is the school that you're talking about part of WVIT?

The building looks like it was a high school in the 50's or earlier , I assume after a modern high school was built or it was amalgamated with other schools it was sold off to the church who used it as a school and worship center

514 5th Ave, Montgomery, WV 25136


The are is to crowded or I could buy it and make it into a castle



Satellite map shows it is next to the newer single story grade school so it almost certainly used to be a public school most likely the HS or JHS as little kids cold not handle three floors of stairs

Does anyone know anything about it?

It was the former home of West Virginia Tech. I attended college there from 1982 -1986. The town will probably die now that there is no outside money to support any of the businesses.

I heard talk the other day that plans are being formed to turn part of the old WVU Tech campus into a behavioral health and addiction therapy center.
