Above is a photograph of the students of Guyan Valley HIgh School taken on 1 August 1927.
Guyan Valley High School was located in Pleasant View, WV along the west bank of the Guyandotte River. The school was built in 1926 and graduated its first senior class of eight students in 1929. The school and three other area high schools were merged to form Lincoln County High School in 2006. The old school building now houses the Guyan Valley Junior High School.
At far left is Fred Bussey Lambert (1873-1967) who established the school. Lambert was a dedicated regional historian and the Fred B. Lambert Papers are available online via Marshall University’s Marshal Digital Scholar.
