About Tucker County, WV

Tucker County is a county located in the U.S. state of West Virginia . As of the 2010 census , the population was 7,141. Its county seat is Parsons . Tucker County was created in 1856 from a part of Randolph County , then part of Virginia . In 1871, a small part of Barbour County, West Virginia , was transferred to Tucker County. The county was named after Henry St. George Tucker, Sr. , a judge and Congressman from Williamsburg , Virginia.

This section requires expansion . The highly profitable Babcock Lumber and Boom Company , operating out of Davis, West Virginia from 1907, was responsible for devastating environmental damage to much of surrounding Tucker County, including Canaan Valley , Dolly Sods and the Blackwater Canyon . These areas were clear-cut and the landscape converted into a tinderbox by the residual slashings. By 1910, fires swept over the wasteland, often burning continuously from spring until the first snows. In 1914, with the county virtually denuded of standing trees, the ground burned continually for 6 months. When the fires subsided, thin mineral soil and bare rock were all that remained. Uncontrollable soil erosion and flooding further degraded and depopulated the region, which bears the scars of the conflagration to the present day.
