Click on LIBRARY
for a quick tour of our library! I knew you would be curious to see our facility.
Located in Central West Virginia, our history/genealogy library is housed in an old grade school in Horner, Lewis County. Initially, we focused on the Hacker's Creek area but our growth during the ensuing years has come to include many of the surrounding counties. People are amazed at the resources we offer on our website, and in our library, to help them in their genealogy journey. We invite you to explore our online resources and perhaps consider joining
our friendly organization. Our members represent almost every state in the United States.
Over the years, the Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendants have commemorated our members, family members and various pioneers of Central West Virginia with wall plaques and adoption of various parts of our facility. Funds generated by these projects have been used to improve and enhance our facility. We are happy to add another opportunity to expand and continue this tradition by offering "Memorial Bricks" which will become a permanent part of our facility as a memorial garden in front of the library on our grounds.
Each Memorial Brick will be engraved by Kiddy Monument of Weston, WV. Engravings can be one to three lines of 16 characters or spaces each of your choosing. Cost of each physical brick is $50. This is a great opportunity to purchase a unique gift for yourself or your family members.
We now offer virtual bricks! These will be displayed in the Gallery section of the website. $25.00 Name & Info, $30.00 Includes photo. Click on link below to learn more and pay. Thank You!
