History of the Main House

Aaron Moore acquired the farm on the fourth of December 1865, during the period of the Civil war.

The Main House was built in 1900 by John William Moore, he was one of four brothers in a family of seven children who were descendants of the great pioneer, Morse Moore, who settled in Pocahontas County around 1760. The Moses Moore Marker is located near the birth place on Route 92.

In 1991, the original house was remodeled by the great nephew of John, Thomas Moses Moore Jr., owner/operator of the Jerico Bed and Breakfast.


“When skiing at Snowshoe Mountain, I always choose to stay at the Jerico. Being around the crowds all day, it is so nice to go back to the quietness of the B&B. I have been staying at the B&B for several years during ski season. The Jerico is pretty perfect! Its in a very nice country setting. The owners are kind and make sure vacationers are taken care of. Can’t beat the hospitality! The food is really good, and I look forward to the big home made breakfast that they have. My favorite room is room 4. There is also a hot tub at the Main House for guests to sit back and relax and with the soft lights surrounding the porch you can watch the deer eat the corn in the snow.

My favorite cabin is the Yank. It has its own private out door hot tub and there is a stream next to it. There are some mornings were you may be greeted by the cows at the fence with curious faces. The rates are much lower than Snowshoe Resort I look forward to my return each year and would highly recommend the Jerico to anyone.”
