Anna Jarvis House

Webster Station was located on the Northwestern Virginia Railroad. Webster was a major supply depot and many warehouses were located here. It also served as a staging area for troops. This was the southernmost station on the railroad. During the Civil War, troops marching into south-central West Virginia embarked and disembarked railcars at Webster.

On June 2, 1861, Col. Ebenezer Dumont's command rode the train from Grafton, disembarking here to continue on foot to attack the Confederates at Philippi. He commanded the 7th Indiana, the 14th Ohio, the 6th Indiana, and a section of artillery leaving Webster to move on Philippi.
