Beverly in Randolph County, West Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Peter Buckey House
After the war, the building was enlarged and continued to be a hotel until well after 1900. It was owned for many years by the Pence family. On the right hand side was the office; on the left, a poolroom. A large dining room in the rear of the building was used for large parties even after the hotel closed.
The original building was a two-story frame building with a 3-bay facade, a porch along the front, and outside end chimneys. It had a one-story ell in the rear with its own chimney. The addition extended the main building to the south making it 5-bays wide, and added a second story and a two story addition to the ell.
Erected by Staunton Parkersburg Turnpike and Historic Beverly, W.Va.
