The President’s Home History
The President’s Home at Concord University, Athens, W.Va.
by Tom Bone III, Class of 1976
For 81 years, the President’s Home at Concord University has been a place where people feel at home. The stately brick structure has hosted governors, celebrities, and Concord students and faculty, in addition to providing living quarters for seven presidents of the institution and their families.
For decades, the home has been a focus for the social life of the community, and a place where thoughtful discussions and earnest negotiations sometimes followed luncheons or dinners.
