Taggart Hall Civil War Museum & Visitors Center is home to the Fort Mill Ridge Foundation and its Fort Mill Ridge Civil War Trenches museum, the Hampshire County Visitors Bureau, and the Hampshire County Chamber of Commerce. It is located in Romney, West Virginia at 91 South High Street. Nextdoor to Taggart Hall on Gravel Lane stands Romney's oldest structure, the Wilson-Wodrow-Mytinger House (c. 1760).

Taggart Hall was constructed in the 1790s by Frances Taggart (Tygart), a Quaker, on a lot at the corner of High Street and Gravel Lane laid out in the original Romney survey conducted in 1762 on behalf of Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron. Taggart Hall was originally built as a clapboard "half-house". The original eighteenth-century structure has been expanded to accommodate the Fort Mill Ridge Foundation, the Hampshire County Visitors Bureau, and the Hampshire County Chamber of Commerce.
