Dunkard Fork WMA is located in northeast Marshall County along the Pennsylvania line on County Route 15. Construction of the dam was originally slated for a location upstream, but was later moved into West Virginia. Construction was underway by 1991 and the Jacob Crow farm was ruined. Archeological digs were conducted and photographs taken to document the site before the structures were razed.
