I saw the town police and the county police walking around the Old Stone House in Belle. Did someone break in. Something was up......

Does anyone know the general history of that house? I'm somewhat new to the area, and I've seen the house but know nothing about it. Any info would be appreciated!

It goes back to around 1800 give or take a decade. Pretty cool stuff inside. If we were in a more educated area it would be a tourist attraction but the locals one day will use it for a methlab/whorehouse before burning it down.

The house was used as ahospital during the Civil War, if only briefly. The Malden, Dickenson, and Ruffner land tracts have a rich history with the Salt Mines, Riverboating and coal. The house was put on the National Historic Registry in the 70's or 80's,(?) with the Belle Womens Club,Lions Club, and multiple other civic organizations that committed to the Fund-raising necessary to preserve, furnish and protect it. At one time Belle was quite the "hub" of activity as the only incorporated area between Charleston and Cedar Grove.

I remember going on field trips to the old stone house. Why is this not done anymore? I as a child enjoyed it. We would walk there from belle school, tour, have bag lunch at oxy park and then head back to school

Many of the Long-term residents have aged out. No one has picked up where the last generation left off. Sad to see such a historic place set to the side, from what seems to be a geenral lack of interest.
