(South Side):
John Crouch, pioneer settler, established "tomahawk rights" here in 1766, but the town was not incorporated until 1893. Here Shavers Fork and Blackwater unite to form the Cheat River. Hu Maxwell, the historian, lived near.

(North Side):
After the battles of Philippi, Laurel Hill, and Rich Mountain, Gen. R.S. Garnett, new commander of the Confederates, led his army southward through the Tygarts Valley. His force was overtaken at Corrick's Ford, July 13, 1861, defeated, and Garnett killed.
