Peter Burr House



Marker is on War Admiral Blvd. (West Virginia Route 9) 0.1 miles north of W. Burr Road, on the right when traveling south. Hard to see if you are not seeking it. Across from Burr Industrial park entrance.



View of property from the railroad bed. The farm site sits to the rear of Burr Industrial Park, and is still owned by Burr descendants.





The Jefferson County Historic Landmarks Commission has an interesting site describing the property and the ongoing restoration.

It is claimed to be the oldest standing post and beam constructed house in West Virginia
