Former Burnsville High School

Sixty years and five months ago tonight, national history was made in this Braxton County high school, when Danny Heater scored 135 points in one game for the Bruins in a 173-43 Burnsville victory over visiting Widen.
Those 135 points still stand today as a record for the most points scored by one person in any organized
High school or professional basketball game.
Nine-plus years later, after the 1968-69 school term, Burnsville consolidated with Gassaway and Sutton to form Braxton County High School.
Rather than a pic from the front of the school are a couple shots from inside the Burnsville gym.
