Alexander Campbell Museum
The Campbell Home, home to Bethany College founder Alexander Campbell, was built between 1795 and 1840. Guests in the Campbell home included Jefferson Davis, future president of the Confederacy; James A. Garfield, trustee of Bethany College and future president of the United States; and Judge Jeremiah Black, U.S. attorney general under President James Buchanan. “Strangers Hall,” with its 19th century French scenic wallpaper, Campbell’s hexagonal brick study, a schoolroom, and gardens still welcome guests today. The Campbell Mansion was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1994.
