The Irish have played an important role in the development  and building of America. Cameron was named for an Irishman named Samuel Cameron after the finishing of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1852. At this time the honor of naming the town was given to an Irishman named David McConaughey who christened it Cameron in honor of his friend Samuel Cameron, a railroad official of prominence, who in 1853 took cholera at Moundsville, died, and was taken to Charles Town, Jefferson County, Virginia, for burial. Cameron is not only a community of unique architecture and scenic beauty but a safe place to raise a family.
