History

The first record of continuous European settlement of the Montcalm area is the 1840 census of Mercer County in what was then the state of Virginia.A 700-acre farm, located at where Crane Creek joins the Bluestone was the property of George Bailey. He, his wife and six children lived on the farm that consisted of a farm house, likely located on the lower slopes of Tabernacle Mountain, an orchard and in what would be today’s Main Street, a field of timothy grass. About one hundred acres of corn field could be found at top of a mountain on the “the opposite side of the river” (either Methodist Church Hill or Browning Lambert Mountain). The farm also featured a small dam on the Crane Creek that powered a corn grist mill, the only one in the area and the farm’s most valuable property.

The Bailey family occupied this farm until 1852 when, in preparation for a move to the West, they sold their considerable estate and all of what would one day be the village of Montcalm for $1,500 to Robert Williams, a recently arrived retired sailor from the British Navy.

Williams wrote and published his experiences in Mercer County and in the events that led up to the Civil War in Kansas in a memoir published in 1908 titled “With the Border Ruffians”, which is the earliest narrative of life in Montcalm’s Bluestone Valley.

Williams writes about meeting the leaders of the early Mercer County communities, a court day in Princeton, a church camp meeting in what would one day be Glenwood Park, hunting in the hills around the Bluestone, community dances and several threats to his life while homesteading on the former Bailey Farm.

After several legal disputes at which he was largely not at fault Williams sold the farm for $2,000 to the Herndon family, a slave holding clan who owned a neighboring farm. According to West Virginia historian Kyle McCormick, descendants of the family lived in Montcalm a century later.

At some point in the 19th century the first formal school in the Montcalm area, known as the Mullins School, was established on Browning Lambert Mountain.

According to local tradition, the name of the town that grew around the former Bailey Farm was first identified as “Riverside”. As it grew with the coming of first local coal mines and then railway lines, it was decided to place a local post office in the town circa 1910. It was then discovered that there was already a town in the state having a post office with the Riverside name and it was necessary to choose a new name. Undocumented tradition states that a group of local schoolchildren, when asked to help select a new town name, selected “Montcalm” as they had just completed their study of the French and Indian War, wherein Louis-Joseph de Montcalm had been the commander of the French forces in North America, and liked the name.

In 1924 an enormous rainstorm caused the collapse of the mountainside along Crane Creek causing a flash flood to inundate Montcalm and its neighboring town of McComas. An explosion of a mining ash and debris dump was touched off by the storm and began a mudslide that covered the train track in fifteen feet of mud and debris. Eight people were killed in what became known as the Catastrophe of Crane Creek.

Montcalm High School was founded as a junior high in 1931 and converted to a senior high in the 1950s.

A new Montcalm High School was completed in 1983.
