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.


“Whenever I have to work in the Marlinton area I look forward to staying with Lindie and Tom at Jerico. The large, quiet, peaceful, beautiful grounds, the large antique-filled beautiful old house, the historic and the new log cabins, and the large delicious breakfast that fills you all day makes Jerico the place to stay. In “the big house” they have a refrigerator, kitchen, hot tub, etc. for guests to use if they choose. The self-service cabins have whatever you need. Lindie and Tom are eager to please their guests and quickly become good friends. They learn what you like and need. They accommodate the business and the leisure traveller alike: they know what you need. You will not be disappointed at Jerico!”
