"Pendleton County is a county located in the U.S. state of West Virginia. As of 2000, the population was 8,196. Its county seat is Franklin. Pendleton County was created by the Virginia General Assembly in 1788 from parts of Augusta, Hardy, and Rockingham Counties and was named for Edmund Pendleton, a distinguished Virginia statesman and jurist. Pendleton County was strongly pro-Confederate during the American Civil War, but was included by the federal government in the new state of West Virginia against the inhabitants' wishes.
"Spruce Knob, located in Pendleton County, is the highest point in the state and in the Alleghenies, its elevation being 4,863 feet. Parts of the Monongahela and George Washington National Forests are also located in Pendleton."
