The first history of Wesleyan published since Kenneth Plummer’s 1965 book, Our Home Among the Hills recounts Wesleyan’s founding in 1890, its early trials and tribulations, its period of dramatic growth in the 1960's and 1970's, and up through its most recent accomplishments. Published to correspond with Wesleyan’s 125th anniversary, this handsome, full color publication uses a substantial number of archival images to enhance the special story of West Virginia Wesleyan College.
