South Branch Valley

Named for the river flowing through it, the valley runs from Pendleton to Hampshire County and has some of the state's most productive farm land. During the French and Indian War, Fort Buttermilk protected area settlers. The valley was again the scene of fighting during the Civil War. Warfield Taylor and family owned a farm near this site, north of the old fort, 1879~1947.
