Cockayne Farmstead

For this project, we repaired and painted areas of decaying wood on the south side of the farmhouse.

The land the Cockayne Farmstead resides on was purchased by Samuel Cockayne and his brother, Carter, in the late 1700s.  On this land, he built a farmhouse along Wheeling Pike from virgin walnut logs. He operated a hotel out of the house called the “Andrew Jackson Inn”.  Eventually, Samuel had 539 acres of farmland, which today makes up all of Glen Dale, West Virginia.  The farmstead was passed down to the next two generations of the Cockayne family until it was left to the city of Glen Dale in 2001.  Today, the Marshall County Historical Society manages the project in saving the house and developing it into a community and cultural center.

The Durable Restoration Company was called in aide in the restoration process of the Cockayne House.  For this project, we repaired and painted areas of decaying wood on the south side of the farmhouse.
