Harrison & Marion County Line - Rt 19

Located on Rt 19 about 1 mile north of Enterprise at the Harrison / Marion County line. (**NOTE - The WV Historical Marker Website lists this sign as Missing**)

Harrison County was created in 1784, formed from Monongalia County and named for Benjamin Harrison V, a Virginian who was the father of William Henry Harrison, the ninth President and great-grandfather of Benjamin Harrison, twenty-third President. County Seat is Clarksburg. (More from Wikipedia)

Marion County was created in 1842 from parts of Monongalia and Harrison Counties, and named in honor of General Francis Marion, of American Revolutionary War fame, known in history as "The Swamp Fox." County Seat is Fairmont. (More from Wikipedia)

Southbound on Rt 19 entering Harrison County. (It looks like someone took a saw and cut off the lower portion of this sign)

Northbound on Rt 19 entering Marion County.

Looking northbound into Marion County.
