Camp Bartow is located in Pocahontas County. Join us for a ribbon cutting on Saturday, October 5th! Many thanks to the WV Humanities Council for funding this site interpretation!!
In the fall of 2016, WVLT purchased a historic Civil War site in Pocahontas County, known as Camp Bartow. The property was the scene of the Battle of Greenbrier River in October 1861. The 14-acre property lies in the heart of the battlefield and was a campground of the 31st Virginia Infantry. As part of the first campaign of the Civil War, the battle proved instrumental in the creation of West Virginia in 1863.
