Notes
Survey number HABS WV-61
Building/structure dates: 182 initial construction
Significance: The Sites Homestead architecturally reveals the evolution of a mid-nineteenth century, one-room log structure, encased and expanded upon by a frame addition, into a two-story, frame vernacular residence or tavern. Within the frame addition, finished carpentry details such as mitered window moldings and stair corners, suggest a degree of craftsmanship above that commonly found in vernacular homes of the period and particular region.
