Cyphert Home, Monongalia County, W. Va.
Description:
'Charles Cyphert home at Fairchance Road, on left just before the Pennsylvania line. It is now covered with field stone. Inside this clapboard is a log cabin (restored and uncovered by the Cypherts.) A date up near the roof says 'remodeled 1801'. It is said to have been a stage coach stop. Nail holes show in the rafters where curtains were hung to separate men and women and children guests. The logs were numbered with Roman Numerals. The pine trees in front are said to have sheltered some of Jones Raiders when they camped there.'
