A Fun Fact About
Upshur County, WV

Presbyterians planned an academy in Buckhannon, even had the building materials stockpiled. McClellan’s Army bivouacked on the property during the first winter of the Civil War and used the building materials for their camp and firewood. 30 years later the Methodist’s established a seminary on the exact same grounds.
Buckhannon was under consideration to be West Virginia’s State Capitol, streets in the City were laid out with that in mind.
