After Sunnyside was established in the 1890s, it attracted a robust working class community from surrounding states and a number of European countries who worked in local industries. They purchased and rented the frame houses throughout the neighborhood until the decline of local industry in the mid to late twentieth century, when the Sunnyside transformed into a center of student residence and culture. Explore the multicultural history of Sunnyside and its communities of past and present in this walking tour, which incorporates original research done by students in WVU's Local History Research Methods course.
