WV History in Postcards

Home, WV Postcards

Jim Blackwood, president of Blackwood Associates, Inc. has collected historical postcards of West Virginia for many years and finds they are a valuable resource for historical projects. These postcards indicate the directions of change in both rural and urban areas, as well as identifying the residents persona of cities and towns at the turn of the century.

As we find new treasures and share with our friends, we will provide links here to scanned historical postcards from areas all over West Virginia. Most of these postcards were actually purchased outside of the state. Real photos are designated RP and circa dates have been provided for postcards that were never postdated.

See our page of B&O Depots and Rail Yards in West Virginia!
