Significance: Constructed in the mid-nineteenth century, the John Bly House functioned as a stagecoach stop on the Morgantown and Uniontown Turnpike, a major link between Uniontown, in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, and Morgantown, West Virginia, and the predecessor to C.R. 857. The house also served as a physician's home, a post office and a grocery store during the ironworks boom in the region.
