The River House has been transformed into a small, boutique lodge tucked away in the mountains of West Virginia. The concept is to bring back to life the River House of the early 1900s. Though razed long ago, the “New” River House now takes its place to welcome guests into a motif of railroading that once dominated the small town of Rowlesburg.
B&O artifacts adorn the rooms and hallways. Pictures of the past history of the town take visitors back to a different time, one of railroading in its golden era.
One source says that the original River House was a tavern and railroad lodge operated by A.A. Perry. According to this version the lodge was the center of this small settlement, with the homes of the Grahams, Wheelers, Goffs, Hootons, and others scattered nearby. The building sat next to the railroad, as did most of the early structures in Rowlesburg.
The front porch, as seen below, is for relaxing!
