The Mummies of The Barbour County Historical Museum

The world famous Philippi Mummies are on exhibit at The Barbour County Historical Museum. For over 100 years they were known as the "Hamrick Mummies" - named after their preserver, Graham Hamrick, a Barbour County native and resident.

As an attraction with P.T. Barnum's Circus in the late 1800's, the mummies have been displayed and toured at fairs and shows all across North America and even parts of Europe. They now rest in Philippi.

The mummies are an exciting and memorable attraction that you will not want to miss. Come see the Philippi Mummies today!
