The Dr. Robert B. McNutt House
The historic McNutt House is home to the Princeton-Mercer Country Chamber of Commerce
The home is two-stories tall and built on hickory logs.
Backstory and Context
According to one source, "the McNutt House was used as headquarters during the war for Lt. Col. Rutherford B. Hayes and Sgt. William McKinley (both past U. S. Presidents). The house was used as a headquarters and field hospital by the Union Army in the spring of 1862 and thus, this location is located along the West Virginia Civil War Trail1."
Today, the house is headquarters of the Princeton-Mercer County Chamber of Commerce, and visitors are welcome to take tours of the historic home.
