“WVSU's historic theater center”
Today, the historic West Virginia State University Capitol Center is an intergral part of a revitalized downtown Charleston. The facility houses five classrooms and a computer lab for class offerings and workshops. An 800-seat theater is an ideal location for stage plays, musicals, and other dramatic offerings. The Center is also the site for the West Virginia International Film Festival which shows a variety of artistic films that may not be offered in the Charleston area. The ghost of John Welch and his daughter Molly are said to haunt the theater. Welch was the owner of a mansion that stood on the property in the 1830s to 1860s, before it was torn down to build the theater. Molly died of pneumonia at age 8, and her apparition has been seen in the balcony watching performances from the front row.
