This box contains $1 million in real money! The money was sent to the West Virginia State Treasurer’s office by the Federal Reserve. This is real money that has been taken out of circulation and shredded—or destroyed—by the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing so they can replace it with new bills.

Visitors are also welcome to view the original Treasurer's Office vault, built in the 1930's. The vault was installed four years after construction on the State Capitol was completed. Since the vault was constructed during a time of increasing crime and specifically robberies, extra security measures were taken. Over the years, many of those securities measures were eliminated but the vault remains an impressive piece of Treasurer's Office history that can be seen by anyone entering the main office.
