WV Roots . . . The House Mom Was Raised In.
Located in the community of Branchland in Lincoln County WV, my mother and her four sisters were raised in this home. My grandparents finally moved out in the early seventies. I lived there myself for the first few months of my life. The house has fallen into disrepair in the decades since and is now uninhabitable. Probably should be torn down. But from what I understand, Mamaw and Papaw Bear had this little home looking quite pristine and beautiful beside the bottom by the Gyuandotte River. Two small bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, bathroom and a little den, all fitting within a few hundred square feet. Below are some pics of the interior as it appears today.
