Historical Information

Hampshire County is the oldest county in West Virginia. It was named for the English shire. Although created by law in 1754 from sections of Augusta and Frederick counties, border unrest during the French and Indian War delayed the formal organization of county government until 1757. A part of Augusta County was added in 1778 and Hardy County in 1787. Hampshire County was one of the fifty western Virginia counties to form the state of West Virginia in 1863.
