The 240,000 square foot Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences - West Virginia opened on July 12, 2003. The Center houses the performing arts, visual arts and the sciences under one roof - one of the few centers of its kind in the country. The facility is home to both the Avampato Discovery Museum and the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
The Clay Center is one of the most ambitious economic, cultural and educational undertakings in West Virginia history. The Clay Center enhances the region's "quality of life" and enriches the lives of all West Virginians.

Charleston Town Center Mall
When opened in 1983, Charleston Town Center was the largest urban shopping center east of the Mississippi River. Today it remains the upscale retail fashion leader in the center of the Kanawha Valley. Within its nearly one million square feet of space are more than 130 specialty stores on three levels, including three anchor department stores, six full service restaurants, and a third-level food court boasting 10 fast food counters. A spectacular Center Court features a three-story atrium, fountain and a Starbucks Cafe. And, with the convenience of three enclosed parking garages, guests remain out of the weather and never more than a few steps away from any mall entrance.
