Canty House The Canty House is the second oldest extant building on campus. It
was constructed circa 1900 by James M. Candy Jr. as a residence for his family. The house consists of five bedrooms, a kitchen,
living room, and a reception hall. According to researchers, the Canty House was a result from the renovation of another house
situated on Canty's private parcel of land at the north end of campus. The house has an interesting history that includes 3
different locations. Originally, the Canty House was built and stood for around 70 years on the present location of Wallace
Hall (1923 - 1969). It was then moved to the northeast corner of the campus behind Hamblin Hall, near Route25, where it
remained for almost 15 years (1969 - 1988). The house was moved to its present location between Fleming Hall and the Campblell
Conference Center in 1988. It is known as the "Magnolia House". It is the only campus building constructed in the Greek Revial
architectural style. The House is used for the Athletic Department offices and the WVSU Sports Hall of Fame.
It was entered in the National Register of Historic Places on September 23, 1988.
