History of 227 Capitol Street

Warner Law Offices, PLLC is located in one of the most historic buildings in Charleston, WV. The building is over 118 years old. The structure was erected in 1891 with Queen Anne-Renaissance-style features, pressed brick, and Victorian turrets. Initially, a clothing store named Gentry’s rented the location. Gentry’s was in business for more than 20 years. In 1914, W.D. and George W. Scott opened the Scott Brothers Drug Store in the building. The brothers kept an apartment on the third and fourth floors and would come down each day for work.

The Scott Brothers Drug Store was at this location until the early 1950s. After the drug store was closed, the First Empire Federal Savings and Loan Association bought the building. The FEFSLA occupied 227 Capitol Street from 1951 to 1996. In 1996, the Bailey and Glasser law firm purchased the building. In 2008, Bailey and Glasser relocated, and the building became vacant.

In July of 2009, Warner Law Offices, PLLC purchased the building. Attorney Bobby Warner renovated the building while keeping the original woodwork and layout intact. Today, 227 Capitol Street remains one of the cornerstones of downtown Charleston.

Bobby Warner Gets Kids ‘Beyond The Backyard’

Youth Foundation Will Get West Virginia Children More Involved in the Outdoors

Charleston attorney Bobby Warner is launching a charitable youth foundation that is geared toward getting West Virginia children more involved in hunting, fishing, and camping. Beyond The Backyard is an organization that will introduce kids to the outdoors through events that will be held across the state of West Virginia. The foundation was created by Warner in response to a troubling national trend that shows fewer children are participating in outdoor activities.

“Every headline that I read about hunting and outdoor participation remains the same,” said Warner. “Hunting numbers continue to decline each year. This foundation is aimed at improving those numbers by reaching out to West Virginia’s youth.”

Those who are close to Warner know that he is very passionate about the outdoors. His television commercials, website, corporate logo, and letterhead for Warner Law Offices, PLLC all have an outdoor theme. He has embraced the outdoors not only as a hobby, but as a lifestyle.

“People ask me all the time why I produce those hunting commercials,” said Warner. “I embrace the fact that I am an avid outdoorsman, and that aspect of our advertising is exactly who we are as a law firm.”

Membership for Beyond The Backyard is totally free. As a member, children will receive a quarterly newsletter, access to an interactive website, and become eligible to participate in writing and art competitions where selected winners will have the opportunity to go on all-expense-paid hunting and fishing trips. The organization will hold seminars, conduct youth hunting and fishing outings, and work closely with parents to give them the tools needed to get their children involved in a multitude of outdoor pursuits.

“Parents will drive this foundation,” said Warner. “We want the parents to be as involved in the entire process as the children are. At the end of the day, if more kids are hunting, fishing, and camping with their families in West Virginia, I will look back at this foundation and say that it was a success.”

    I am very pleased with the work that Warner Law Offices did for me. I would recommend them to all my friends.
