ANSTED, WV (WOAY) – Just off Rt. 60, Tyree Tavern is on the real estate market with its rich history.
Built in 1800, the Tyree Tavern has hosted many influential visitors over the past 220 years.
“Everyone tried to get here when they were crossing the Appalachian Mountains,” said historian and realtor David Sibray. There was John C. Breckenridge, Vice President of United States. There was Daniel Webster and Henry Clay, a wonderful statesman.”
Since it was built, the halfway house has served as a tavern, bed-and-breakfast and even as a residential home. Now, it’s on the market for $200,000.
“I think it would make an excellent bed-and-breakfast, certainly a museum. The house is incredible. It’s unlike anything you normally find by way of a house.”
With a house so old, there is bound to be some need for renovations. Luckily, the cost of any renovations that help preserve the building wouldn’t come out of the owners pocket.
“This house is on the national register of historic places,” said Sibray. “It’s eligible for grants and tax credits, many of which are available to rectify [any] problems.”
For more information, visit the open house event on June 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. and see the listing here.
