West Liberty in Ohio County, West Virginia — The American South (Appalachia)
From 1932 to 1970, McColloch Hall contained West Liberty State College's library. It also housed an art department, home economics, and the first student union - The Center. Originally erected as a freestanding building, it was joined with Curtis Hall in 1961 to become the East Wing of Main Hall.
The building's name honored Milton McColloch, an 1893 graduate of the West Liberty Normal School, a descendant of a famous pioneer family and a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates from Ohio County.
This plaque is dedicated to the members of the McColloch family and their contributions to the College and the Ohio Valley.
Erected by West Liberty University.
