Notes
Survey number HABS WV-250-F
Significance: The smoke house was a common feature of most farms in the area. Before the introduction of electric freezers, smoking provided a popular means of preserving meat for family use. Raw meat, especially pork, was smoked in an enclosed building by means of a hardwood fire ignited in the smoke house and allowed to burn for several days.
