Cabin History

The  log cabin was purchased by John Buhl in 1973.  It was the first time that the cabin had been out of the Stump Family since the 1700's.  

Stump Family

Michael Stump I came to America in 1743 on the ship "Phoenix" from Germany to Phildelphia. 

Michael Stump I had three sons who served in the Revolutionary War.

Michael Stump II was aide-de-camp to General George Washington.

One of the Stump family graveyards dating back to the early 1800's can still be seen on the property. 

Captain George Washington Stump served in the Civil War on the side of the Confederacy even though most of West Virginia was Union.

2014 Renovation

Major renovations were made to the "new" part of the cabin.  The "new" part is now over 40 years old and was in need of repair.  The kitchen was completely replaced, plumbing and electical wiring re-done, and the back porch was bumped out to allow for a larger kitchen and dining area.  New stone walkways and retaining walls were added as well as extending the porch around the "new" side of the house.
