PARKERSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA:   A VINTAGE PORTRAIT

MURDOCH AVENUE

Looking north on Murdoch near Eighth Street around 1907.




Somewhere between Eighth and Thirteenth Street in 1906-07.




The Federal-style Cook house, seen here early in the twentieth century, is located at
1301 Murdoch Avenue. Built in 1829, it's Parkersburg's oldest home north of the
Little Kanawha River still standing on its original site.
