The city's Civil War history and heritage is strong. During the Civil War Union soldiers camped on the town square. Most of the town was burned by both sides, although most of the brick buildings on the square were built in the 1890s. Berryville was founded in 1850 by Blackburn H. Berry from Alabama. The first settler in what is now Berryville was David Williams of Tennessee in 1831.
Be sure to visit the Saunders Museum as well as Carroll County Heritage Center for more history on the area. Nearby Cosmic Cavern provides a unique attraction for those who would like to experience the limestone wonders of the underground.
