A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Malta, West Virginia
Welcome to Malta ...
Although we found mention of Malta during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Malta was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Malta was located in Barbour County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Malta to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Malta - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Malta, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Malta might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Malta would be found within the (304) & (681)<2> area codes.
