Droop Mountain, on the border of Greenbrier County and Pocahontas County, was the scene of a locally important battle during the Civil War. By no means as massive a mountain as its counterparts elsewhere in the Allegheny Mountains, Droop formed a barrier to north-south passage along the west bank of the Greenbrier River. Droop rises just south of Hillsboro, West Virginia, on U.S. Route 219.
