APUS in Charles Town: A History Told through University Archives
This exhibit displays the growth of American Military University, the creation of American Public University System, and the history of the University’s historic buildings in Charles Town, West Virginia.
AMU reorganized into American Public Education, Inc. resulting in the establishment of APUS in 2002. The restructuring of AMU and the creation of American Public University transformed the University. The student population was growing and APUS moved headquarters from Manassas, Virginia to Charles Town. The University acquired 19th century buildings and restored them for modern office use, while preserving those historic properties. The changes are documented in archival papers and photographs, and tell the history of APUS in Charles Town.
