Barbour County Collectible Plaques
The Barbour County Courthouse.
approximately 5" x 7"
Barbour County was carved from parts of Randolph, Harrison and Lewis counties, Virginia, in 1843. Philippi, the county seat, was originally called Anglin’s Ford and later known as Booth’s Ferry. The first land battle of the Civil War was fought in this town. Union troops occupied the first courthouse during the Civil War and from its cupola floated the first battle flag of that war. In February 1903, the present courthouse replaced it. It was constructed of Hummelstown stone and the upper portions of the windows are adorned with stained glass. - $15.00
