The Norton House is located at 315 Commerce Drive in downtown Malden. It is the oldest house in the historic old town and is currently owned and operated by West Virginia State University. During the Civil War, soldiers from both the Union and Confederacy slept there. The Norton House was first built in the 1840's by Moses Norton and James G. Norton both of whom were businessmen in the Malden area. It was not until 1994 when the house got a much needed restoration. The town of Malden is full of history and information including Booker T. Washington’s old cabin house, the first African Zion Baptist Church of the area, and the old salt works which was the workplace for over 1,000 slaves back in the Civil War era.
