Romney Historic Property Forms


 

This is a listing of West Virginia Historic Property Forms that have been filled out at various times on buildings in the commercial center of Romney. Some of these buildings are no longer standing; some have been re-purposed and some have new owners. This information is listed here because it is an important reference for a register of historic buildings/structures. However, it should not be taken as a complete reference. Often no deed documentation is shown, and no history of ownership is included. More research should be done on these buildings to complete their history. It is suggested that one refer to the bibliography listed on this web site to find other sources of information on these buildings. Sources should include at least:
  History of Hampshire County by Maxwell & Swisher
  Historic Romney, 1762-1937 by The Town Council
  Historic Hampshire, A Symposium by Selden Brannon
  Rob Wolford's research for the Fort Mill Ridge Foundation on Civil War buildings
  The pages "Tidbits of History" and "Timeline" on this web site.
