During the US Civil War, the area that would become Scary, West Virginia was the site of the first Confederate victory in Kanawha Valley, on July 17, 1861. This is commemorated by two distinct plaques, very near to each other, in the town today.
A post office was established as Scary in 1886, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1931.
