Piedmont, three miles southeast of Gilmer and a mile east of U.S. Highway 271 in south central Upshur County, was probably established around 1900. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and a number of houses. Many of its residents moved away after World War II, but in the mid-1960s the school and the church were still present. In 1990 Piedmont was a dispersed rural community. In 2000 the population was twenty.
