Fulton County Historical Society


In December 2016 the historical society bought the former G. C. Murphy building at 211 Lincoln Way East in McConnellsburg (across the street from the Fulton House) and began renovations. Like the Fulton House itself, the Museum Annex building is also on the National Register of Historic Places. It has had many purposes over the years including having served as a grocery, a garage & gas station, and as a retail store. Attached to the Annex, a restaurant sits on the right of the entrance and a banquet room is in the back. The building houses exhibits representing businesses that operated in the county. Currently there are temporary displays and permanent storefront exhibits that were completed in November 2019 with several more in-progress. The new exhibits include machinery from some of the county’s grist mills, a gun shop, and artifacts from county garages. The Courthouse display has been relocated and a bank display has been set up.
