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.
