Historic Chrislip Hollow - Barbour Co

Near Elk City in Barbour County, between Clarksburg and Philippi (closer to Philippi). This area is where Revolutionary War Patriot Jacob Christlieb settled with his family (wife, 7 daughters and 7 sons) after emigrating from Germany in 1765. The County Road was icy, so I decided to wait on riding back to the cemetery. For a brief history of the area and photos of the cemetery, click the following link:

Historical Marker located on Rt 57 near Elk City, about 3 miles west of the junction with Rt 119.



View of Rt 57 looking westbound toward Clarksburg. CR57/8 to the right leads to the cemetery, but it was too icy for me today.

Rt 57 is a nice ride. I usally take this section as I'm heading toward Seneca - from Clarksburg to Philippi to Belington to Elkins.
