History of the Ruckman Cabin

image6 Ruckman Cabin West Virginia CabinsThe Col. Ruckman Cabin was named after John W. Ruckman, who was commissioned Captain in the 127th Regiment of the 20th Brigade and 3 division of the Virginia Militia by Governor Henry A. Wise.
On September 17, 1858, Ruckman was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel by Governor Henry A. Wise of Virginia.

During the Civil War, John Ruckmans regiment served mostly in the capacity of road and bridge clearance, construction and repair.

Katherine Ruckman McClure Beard was the great granddaughter of John Wade and Margaret Ann Moore Ruckman. It is admirable that she should have the original home of her great grandparents preserved by her cousin Thomas Moses Moore Jr., now the owner / operator of the Jerico Bed & Breakfast. The cabin was moved from the Ruckman Homestead located in Mill Point, WV, to the Jerico Bed & Breakfast in 2004, and opened its doors to welcome its first guest on July 1, 2015.


“During our Road Trip in May 2012, The North Cross Bluegrass Band, played at the Marlinton Opera House. At this time we had the pleasure of staying at the Jerico B&B Loring River Cabin. So beautiful!!!! The accommodations were top notch and so was the hospitality of Tom & Lindie Moore. We would definitely recommend this stay to anyone! Hope that we can make this stop again in the future!”
