Notes
Survey number HABS WV-266-C
Significance: The Barn is considered eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing structure associated with the Abraham Jackson Cyrus Farmstead. The Cyrus farmstead is significant in terms of its association with the locally prominent Cyrus family, and with the early commercial and social history of the village of White's Creek. The barn was built on lands owned by Abraham Cyrus (1818-1903). It was used first as a general purpose barn, but in the late 1880s housed a grain mill. The mill processed grain off the Cyrus family and other local farms, and apparently was run with a general store just to its north. After 1900 the barn was modified as a cattle and dairy barn used by the Cyruses and Drowns, families related by marital and economic ties. The barn is one of very few remaining in the lower Big Sandy River Valley, a region much affected by industrial development.
