Latham House

Address: Madison Street, Buckhannon, WV 26201
Description:

The Latham house was originally built in 1858. The house has been known to most of us in Buckhannon as the Latham House since the Civil War because of its most famous owner, George Robert Latham, who moved from Grafton and purchased the home from its original owner after his return from Australia where he served as U.S. Consul from 1867 to 1870. After moving here, he was elected as Superintendent of Upshur County Schools and after his death here at the age of 85, he was buried in Heavner Cemetery. Like many of Create Buckhannon’s ongoing efforts, restoring the Latham House is just part of a larger plan to involve and empower those interested in helping to make Buckhannon a better place for all of us while encouraging economic growth and planting the seeds for a future that we all can be proud to share with those who come after us.
