Pursgloves in Clarksbugh, West Virginia

Originally a small settlers camp in 1764 on the West Fork River, Clarksburg was established in 1785, named after General George R. Clark.  Roads were built in 1831-1836 when the Northwest Turnpike (Route 50) was finished.  Railways arrived in 1856 and the population growth became significant in the modern development of the city.
