HISTORY

     BATH COUNTY was established in 1811 from land given by Montgomery County. Its name is derived from natural springs said to have medicinal qualities. The courthouse in Owingsville was destroyed through fire in 1864.
     In 1932, an archaeological field survey observed fourteen archaeological sites in Bath County, including the Ramey Mound near Sharpsburg and multiple ancient burials near the Springfield Presbyterian Church.
