Welcome to

Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendants, Inc.



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.


*The mural at the top of this collage was painted by Charlotte Gerlach in 1998-99. Read more about it here. The images on the bottom row are: HCPD Library, John Hacker Settlement Sign, and the Old Hacker Cemetery.
