John Simpson - Harrison Co

John Simpson was the first white man in the area - established a camp in 1764 along the nearby West Fork River. The area later became Clarksburg.
The town of Simpson is located about 15 miles east of here off Rt 76 near Flemington and Tygart Lake.



Historical Marker located on West Pike St coming out of Clarksburg (about 1 mile from the downtown area) at the junction of Rt 20 (W Pike St) and Rt 19. Just ask the locals where Long John Silvers is located, and you're there!




The marker is located on a traffic island. I've ridden past here a million times and never noticed the sign. Shame on me!
