HISTORY & ARCHITECTURE
Architecturally significant, Hiram Hedges House has been surveyed by state capitol historians and determined eligible for National Register of Historic Places. The Federal home was completed in two phases (c.1770 & c.1830) with Italianate addition completed c.1900. It is a rare example of 2-story log structure and a well-preserved period home in excellent condition.
Situated on 5 historic acres granted from King of England by Lord Fairfax in 1754, the home’s attic contained the original parchment land grant. The Hedges family were prominent settlers of West VA and early colonial America, relatives of pioneer Col. Morgan Morgan, and members of the DAR.
