Kanawha Co. The Ruffners





Holly Grove Mansion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Holly Grove Mansion, also known as Holly Grove Inn or Ruffner Mansion, is a historic home located at Charleston, West Virginia on the grounds of the West Virginia State Capitol. It is a large brick house with a front section made to accommodate three floors and rear section housing two. It features a massive two story, semi-circular portico at the front entrance. It was constructed originally in 1815 as the home of Daniel Ruffner, one of a family which helped develop the early salt industry in the Kanawha Valley. It gained its present day appearance in about 1902 when new owner, John Nash, undertook substantial remodeling.[2] In 1979, the mansion underwent an extensive rehabilitation when it became headquarters for the West Virginia Commission on Aging.[3]
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

I'm working on kanawha county on the map. And that looks like a good route into Charleston to take photos of markers next week.

nevermind, I see dipstick is working rt 60 in kanawha co.

kanawha co is mapped.
Dang, looks like I've got some catching up to do on the spreadsheet. Between intothenew, Dipstick, and I (and a few others), there have been about 150 posts in the past 5 days . I'll try to have it updated by tonight.

Thanks everyone!

Pnoman & Freaking RT,

That's all for me right now, at least in Kanawha Co.
I do have alot more photos of Memorials, Statues, and Monuments if anyone is interested. Also photos inside the Mansion and Museum. Anyone going to the Capitol for the marker photo with Manchin should stop in at the Museum, it is new and worth your time. Also be sure and tour the Capitol and Masion (may need appointment for mansion). I mentioned that the Archives/Museum building has a new gift shop and there is a restaurant in the basement of the Capitol.

By the way, DipStick is a she.
