Historic Hampshire County, WV
West Virginia's Oldest County

Old Photographs of Hampshire County, West Virginia

We are in the process of restructuring our enlarged collection of old photographs. Below is an album of smaller thumbnails; click on the small photo for a larger image. Click on the larger image to return to the album. Note there is a caption below the large photo that may tell something about the location. Check back later to see any additions. Note that page links may change; you may have to go through the index page.

We invite you to contact us about lending photos or postcards or other types of images to be scanned and added to our collection. Although there have been projects in the past to create books or collections of Hampshire County photographs, none are currently available free to the public. Please help us expand this project for the benefit of all our citizens. We envision a project that will have an extensive collection available throught this web site and through our county library. You may contact Charles Hall to inquire about helping with this collection. Thank you.

These photos are large files, usually between 80-120kb! Many are from old postcards so the quality is somewhat lacking.
Newest additions have bold border around them.
