Braxton County Virginia


Map of Va: Braxton CountyBraxton County was formed in 1836 from Lewis County. The county's name honored Carter Braxton, one of Virginia's signers of the Declaration of Independence. The county was first settled about 1789 by the Carpenter family near the mouth of the Holly River. Early settlers came from Greenbrier, Pendleton, and Randolph counties. In 1849 Braxton gained from Randolph County those lands from the head of the right fork of Little Kanawha River to the top of Point Mountain. In 1858 and 1860, respectively, Braxton contributed to the partial formation of Clay County and Webster County. In 1861, the Braxton-Webster line was defined more specifically.
