Three Views of the City

Submitted by Gerald Baughman
Philippi c.1903

Cool picture of North Philippi from a postcard. A-B is not built, so it is before 1908. My grandparents told me that when they moved to North Philippi in 1903, there were only 6 houses, so 1903 would be close for this picture.

Philippi, WV view from position of Federal Battery First Battle of Civil War June 3, 1861
Philippi c.1905

A Philippi postcard. The Methodist Church is there, so the photo is 1905 or later, but the back streets are not paved. Shows the mill just upstream from the covered bridge.

Philippi c.1910

Nice postcard view of Philippi ca 1910. Unpaved Main Street, old mill above the bridge.
