Creation: WV 259 was designated in 1941, running generally the way it does now. VA 259 was a renumbering of WV 58 south of Baker and WV 23 north of Baker. This is the only WV 259.
Adjustments: In October 2006, WV 259 was placed on newly constructed Corridor H from Baker to Wardensville. The old route became an extended WV 29 and a lenghty CR 55/20.
Improvements: Upon designation, WV 259 was fully paved; multilane upon addition to Corridor H.
Comment: WV 259 is a quiet ride through eastern West Virginia and has no problematic segments now that it is on Corridor H.
WV 259 can be used as a back door short cut from Harrisonburg VA to Corridor H or even Winchester VA.
