Reflections of Times Past2020-02-26T16:37:59-05:00

When Andrew Lewis,

early American pioneer, surveyor, and soldier from Virginia, came to survey one of the land grants for the Greenbrier Company in 1751 he found Jacob Marlin and Stephen Sewell living where Marlinton is found today. They had come from Frederick Maryland in 1749 and are considered the first settlers west of the Alleghenies.

Pocahontas County, like so many rural regions in the country, has its own distinct and novel history. Land is rich, forests are thick, and waters are abundant and clean. People from here are no different than anywhere else – proud of their past and who work to insure their children have a successful and peaceful future.
