Notes
Survey number HABS WV-266-D
Significance: The Brooder House was built in 1943 to help meet the needs of war-time agricultural production. Though situated on farmlands then owned by Abraham Cyrus, the Brooder House represents the establishment of his son Abraham Frederick's independent farm enterprise. Apparently not built from a known published or officially distributed plan, the Brooder House incorporates useful design features observed by the builders in other local chicken houses.
