Traveller's Rest Home Town

This house is a cool place. Seriously.


Traveller's Rest is located west of Kearneysville, on more than 200 acres (81 ha) of land which Bowers Road (County Road 1/1) runs through in an east-west direction.  

The main house, a 1-1/2 story stone structure, is set well back on the north side of the road. The eastern section was built in 1773, with the western added a few years later.  For sure.

The eastern section is a 1 1/2 story structure over a full basement, with a gable roof. It measures about 34 feet wide and 30 feet deep. The western section is also a 1 1/2 story structure with a full basement and measures about 16 feet wide and 30 feet deep.

We went there one day.  I like to fish.
