Students of Gauley Bridge High were referred to as the Travellers. Their mascot is a reference to Robert E. Lee's horse Traveller. In the gym there is a large mural of Lee on his horse.
The Gauley Bridge High School year book is named Gauneka after three local rivers, the Gauley, the New, and the Kanawha. Located one mile from the building, the Gauley and New meet to form the Kanawha River.
Today the building is referred to as the Gauley bridge Community center. It is open year round. Exercise classes and various entertainment are offered to the citizens of Gauley Bridge. The building can be rented out for special occasions and church services. Several of the old classrooms house collections of memorabilia from the high school.2 Upon request, visitors may view class rings from the 1920s and 1930s
