Hampshire County was created by the Virginia General Assembly on
December 13, 1753 from parts of Frederick and Augusta counties
(Virginia) and is the oldest county in the state of West Virginia. The
county lies in both West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle and Potomac
Highlands regions. Its county seat is Romney, West Virginia's
oldest town (1762).
its creation was authorized in 1753, Hampshire County was not actually
organized until 1757 because the area was not considered safe due to
the outbreak of the French and Indian War (1754-1763). According to
Samuel Kercheval's A History of the Valley of Virginia, the county was
named in honor of its several prize hogs.
