Mineral County was formed from Hampshire, by Act of February 1, 1866,
and named from the vast mineral resources within its limits. Piedmont,
"Foot of the Mountain,'' was laid out by the New Creek Company and Owen
D. Downey, and incorporated by act of the Legislature, February 20,
1856. [Source: History of West Virginia;By Virgil
