The Passing of Important Landmarks

Buildings or sites that are
no longer part of our county life

HistoricHampshire.org has a mission to preserve or archive the history of West Virginia's oldest county. As such we take note of the passing of important landmarks whether they be houses, schools, places of business or other important parts of our way of life. We have here an album of some of those that have passed within recent memory.

We invite you to contact us about lending photos or postcards or other types of images to be scanned and added to our collection. You may contact Charles Hall to inquire about helping with this collection. Thank you.
