HISTORY OF SUMMERSVILLE

BROCK HOUSE

The Brock House, which was previously known as the Brock Hotel, was
built in 1890 and is a large two-and-ahalf story frame dwelling with a Queen
Anne style and featuring broad, shady
porches and high pitched twin gables in
a vernacular. It measures approximately
48 feet wide and 40 feet deep. The
Brock House is now a private home.

Brown Oaks is
the home of the
late local physician, Flavius H.
Brown. The circa 1923 house is an
outstanding example of Colonial Revival
Architecture of the early 20th century.
Built by one of only two doctors in
Nicholas County at the time, the house
was well-suited for a prominent doctor
and his family. The adaptive reuse of
this historic house and property, under
the ownership and care of the City of
Summersville, has created a jewel in the
heart of town that is used for a variety
of community events and can be rented
for private or business events. Call (304)
872-9248 for additional information.

HAMILTON HOUSE
This historic home was built by
Martin Hamilton in 1893 and
is located one mile down Rt.
39 West. Martin Hamilton came
to the area as a child soon after
the Civil War. He and his wife,
Hanna Remley Hamilton, reared
a family of six children in the
home, which was occupied until
1984. It is a simple one-story
frame dwelling with clapboard
siding and a corrugated metal
roof. An eight-foot addition was
built in 1936. It was donated to
the Nicholas County Historical &
Genealogical Society in 1985 and
is used as a museum and genealogical library.

OLD MAIN

The former Nicholas County High School,
this two-story Renaissance-style building
was constructed in 1913 and graduated
the first class in 1915. The school was
eventually replaced by the current Nicholas County High School, located on the
northern part of Summersville. Today, Old
Main serves as a museum with memorabilia from the 1900s. The auditorium
also serves as the location of several local
theatrical performances and entertainment
throughout the year. Located at 405 Old
Main Drive in Summersville. Find us on
