Notes
Survey number HABS WV-298-D
Building/structure dates: 1946 initial construction
Significance: The chicken house on the Norris Farm is an example of a mid-twentieth century agricultural outbuilding. The chicken house is unique in its size, its number of stories, and its construction. With changes in agricultural practices, older chicken houses are becoming rare as they are being replaces by more modern facilities or left to deteriorate. Modern development is also contributing to the disappearance of older agricultural outbuildings. As this development takes over agricultural lands, existing agricultural outbuildings are quickly disappearing.
