History: The library history of Pendleton County dates back to 1855, when the county’s first library was founded. Most of that library’s books were lost during the Civil War, and it wasn’t until 1936 that the Franklin Federate Women’s Club revived the library. Sixteen years later, it was moved to the county court house, and in 1974 it was shifted to the McCoy House on Main Street. Finally, in 1987, the library moved to its current location. The Pendleton County library serves more than 8,000 residents in and around Franklin, WV.
