Madie Carroll House
234 Guyan Street
Huntington, Cabell / Wayne County, West Virginia, 25702
The Madie Carroll House is an historic home located in the Guyandotte neighborhood in the city of Huntington, Cabell County, West Virginia.
The original section of the house was built prior to 1810, and is believed to have arrived in Guyandotte by flatboat from Gallipolis, Ohio. The property was purchased by Thomas Carroll in March 1855 and remained under the ownership of his descendants until it was deeded to the Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District on October 10, 1984 after the last tenant, Miss Madie Carroll's demise.
It is one of the few houses in Guyandotte to survive the Civil War and even once was a church, an inn, and a home to many. During the Civil War the house was a safe haven for Union soldiers which is a rich history that the Madie Carroll House Preservation Society has spent the last few decades protecting and educating many on.
As of today the house is owned and operated by the Madie Carroll House Preservation Society where they hold several events such as their annual Guyandotte Civil War Days.
It is open to the public as a museum.
