HEDGESVILLE WEST VIRGINIA 

Hedgesville WV

HISTORY 

Hedgesville, West Virginia was established by an act of the Virginia General Assembly on February 11, 1836, and the town was laid out in 1832 along what is now called West Virginia Route 9.  Hedgesville was named for the prominent local Hedges family.  In 1854, Hedgesville was officially incorporated by the General Assembly.  The act of incorporation set the stage, so that in 1858, a mayor could be added to the council.  Hedgesville is listed as a National Register Historic District.  The Town of Hedgesville is located at the site of a natural limestone spring which had been an Indian meeting place before European settlers.  The spring was a determining factor leading to the settlement of the area.  The water temperature of the spring is a constant 57 degrees and has never been affected by drought.  Legend has it that whoever drinks from the spring will always return.
