Freemansburg, represented by a very tiny dot on the map, has been called home by generations of central West Virginians. The people of Freemansburg are a unique blend of Appalachian culture and Scotch-Irish tradition. Loyal and steadfast to their homeland, many can trace their roots unbroken to the original founding fathers (and mothers) of the area. This account will reveal how Freemansburg evolved through many stages: from an Indian hunting ground to a rugged new village of settlers to a thriving little town and finally to a quiet hamlet in the hills. The story includes the development of churches, schools and businesses in the town, as well as an account of the homes and the families that resided in them.
