A Gazetteer of Extinct Towns in Cabell County, West Virginia


Located in southwestern West Virginia along the Ohio River, Cabell County was created by an act of the Virginia General Assembly on January 2, 1809 from part of Kanawha County. It was named in honor of William H. Cabell (1772-1853), who served as Governor of Virginia from 1805 to 1808. In 1863, Cabell became part of the new state of West Virginia.
