Scott's Run Museum

The Digital Writing Heritage II Project is the third year of a Kellogg-funded partnership between the Scott’s Run community and the West Virginia University English Department. The project focuses on archiving and presenting community history and information in cooperation with the Scott’s Run Museum in Osage, WV. As one outcome of the project, this web site provides information and access to the rich history and materials available at the Scott’s Run Museum. Additional information about the history and scope of the Project is available here.

Sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation, this site introduces the Scott's Run Museum in Osage, West Virgininia. The Museum celebrates and preserves the history of the coal boom era in the Scott's Run area and in surrounding Monongalia County. For a pop-up map of the Scott's Run area, click here.
