MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University’s Reedsville Experiment Farm in Preston County will be transformed into a modern teaching, research and extension center.

The university has received a $6.7 million gift from the Hazel Ruby McQuain Charitable Trust to transform the equine educational facilities at the 995-acre farm.

The university says the center will increase student and community opportunities for learning, provide applied research opportunities for faculty and provide an example of how a sustainable farm is managed.

In recognition of the gift, WVU will name the center the Hazel Ruby McQuain Equine Education and Resource Center. The farm will be named the J.W. Ruby Research Farm.
