The first edition of The Mound yearbook was published in 1908 by the senior class of Fairmont State Normal School.

At that time, the school was located on Fairmont Avenue. Student organizations included religious, literary and academic societies. Tuition was free.

Now, you can view copies of The Mound yearbook online.  Find photos and memories of friends or family that have attended Fairmont State.
