The Spelling of Our Name
In case you are wondering about the spelling of our town and its river, the River is the Cacapon River. In colonial times it was spelled various ways including among others: Cacapehon and Cape Capon. The town is Capon Bridge leaving off the first sylable as does Capon Springs and Capon Valley. The derivation of the name is questionable; our major county history by Maxwell & Swisher says it may have come from an Indian word for "medicine water" prompted by the various springs along the river.
