CURRENT Place Names in the County


Best use of these tables are as follows.
  1. Using the Alphabetical table, find your place name.
  2. Using the Latitudinal table, find the places NEAR yours.
  3. Using the Longitudinal table, find the places NEAR yours.
  4. Use the county road map available from the WVDOT to pinpoint your place name.
It is also possible to use one of the commercial map CDs to match the lat./long. of your place name, but I found that VERY awkward.

The user is also warned that many of these place names are local, neighborhood designations NOT shown on many maps. I grew up in Hampshire county and there are names here I've NEVER heard. There are other names which appear here as a Place name (i.e., Los Angeles or Omaha or DesMoines) which I always heard as the name of a specific family's home (i.e., Grandma's, Mrs. Doe's, or the Jones').
