Brumley, on Farm Road 2454 eleven miles northwest of Gilmer in northern Upshur County, was settled before 1900. A school was operating there around 1900, and in 1906 it had an enrollment of eighty-three. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a store, and a number of scattered houses; the estimated population in 1940 was twenty. After World War II the Brumley school was consolidated with that of Union Hill, and by the mid-1960s all that remained of Brumley was a church and a few widely scattered houses. In 1990 the church was still there.
