Before Bacova was a company it was a place. In fact, that place, Bacova, Virginia, exists today. A tiny village nestled in the Allegheny Mountains of western Virginia; the Tidewater Oil Company founded Bacova early in the 1920s, as a company owned logging town.

Bacova, an acronym for BAth COunty VirginiA was home to the largest lumberyard on the East Coast during the 20s, but the company went bankrupt during the Great Depression. In 1957 a New Jersey industrialist, Malcolm Hirsh, bought the entire town. In 1965 Mr. Hirsh founded The Bacova Guild to provide an economic life for the villagers occupying the town's 42 homes.
Bacova's first products focused on nature art laminated into fiberglass items including the famous classic Bacova fiberglass covered mailboxes.

Bacova was sold in 1981 to Pat Haynes and Ben Johns, two former Tennis pros looking for a way to live and work in the beautiful Allegheny Highlands they had come to love, Bacova grew from a tiny company to a successful gift company.
