Archives (& Special Collections)
Along with the Local History & Genealogy Collection, Waldomore is also home to the archives of the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library. The Archives are composed of collections of rare and unique materials that have been gathered since 1931. They contain a variety of materials including photographs, portraits, diaries, letters, posters, maps, handouts, and artifacts highlighting the history and culture of North Central West Virginia. Due to fragile nature of the materials, access is limited to appointment only.
The most prominent collection in the Waldomore Archives is the Gray Barker (UFO) Collection. Gray Barker was a noted writer, hoaxer, and teller of tall tales . He was active in the UFO community from the early 1950’s until his death in 1984. Barker was born in Braxton County, but called CLarksburg home for much of his career.
