Morgan’s Kitchen Museum

St. Albans, WV

Historic Morgan's Kitchen was built in 1846 by John Morgan Jr., who at the same time, built his first log home. Later he built a 2-story frame home. John purchased his land from George Washington's physician, James Craik.

Located on MacCorkle Ave. across from Parkway Terrace, Morgan's Kitchen is typical of log structures used during its period. It was originally located at Morgan's Plantation near the present John Amos Electric Power Plant in nearby Putnam County. It was used to serve meals as well as serving as a hospital to the wounded Union soldiers during the Civil War at the battle of Scary Creek nearby.

The kitchen was donated to the city of St. Albans by Sid Morgan and moved to this site in 1972, mainly by Hal Turley and his family. It is furnished with period cookware and utensils-much from the original kitchen, as well as rustic tables, a storage chest and bed.
