Glen Rogers High School

The Glen Rogers, West Virginia high school, located deep within the coalfields of Wyoming County along Laurel Fork, was built in 1951 to replace an earlier structure. Adjacent to the high school was an elementary school. The high school closed in 1992 when enrollment dropped under 200 students.1

  1. So sad how the closed high schools have been left to ruin. I don’t understand why they wasn’t made into shelters for low income, elderly or homeless. People on low income who aren’t able to cook or clean for themselves, go to the grocery store or doctor could have really benefitted from a place like that. Add an elevator in each end of the school would have solved the mobility problem, there is so many things that could have been done with the buildings.
