History

The new county was named for the Greenbrier River, a prominent water feature of the region. The first settlement in the region was made at Frankfort in 1769. shortly thereafter, in 1777, Greenbrier County was formed from the western parts of Botetourt and Montgomery counties. At the time, the new counties encompassed the entire central region of present-day West Virginia. In 1790 part of Bath County and in 1799 all of Monroe County was cut off from Greenbrier lands. Also from Greenbrier came part of Nicholas County (1818), part of Pocahontas County (1825 & 1827), part of Fayette County (1831), part of Webster (1863 & 1882), and Summers County (1871). Portions of the Monroe cessions were returned to Greenbrier in 1825 and 1827, and part of the Fayette cession was returned in 1833. -- Iberian Publishing Company
