Our brand new Crews Cabin by the Falls is a family cabin project built on the original family property site. The original family home was built by Ira and Winnie Crews in 1936. Ira built the home during his off hours from his jobs at the Wallace Pinmill Factory, Cherry River Boom and Lumber Company, VFW and American Legion in downtown Richwood. Winnie was mostly a stay-at-home mom to their seven kids, Arthur, Kenneth, Eugene, Ira B (Jr.), Paul, Eula and Virginia, but did manage to work part-time in housekeeping at a nearby motel.
During this time, the road where the house was located, Marlinton Road, was not paved. The Crews family never owned an automobile, which meant daily one-mile school walks to Richwood for the kids and walks as needed for groceries and other supplies.
While the house did have electricity, the water was piped down from a nearby spring and had a strong sulphur smell and red coloring. The house had an outdoor toilet until 1940 when an indoor bathroom was built. Bathing was accomplished in a wash tub and cooking was done on a wood stove and house heated by a coal stove.
All the Crews children attended and graduated from Richwood High School. All five sons served in some military capacity during World War II and were all deployed either stateside or overseas at the same time. After marriages, Arthur (Ott) (and Louise) settled near Sutton, WV; Eugene (and Lucille) in Texas; Kenneth (and Della) in Ohio; Ira B (Jr) and (Edna) in New York; Paul (and Carol Ann) in Florida; Eula (and Lake) in Nettie, WV and Virginia (and Pat) in Summersville, WV.
Even though the family scattered in different directions and states, the Crews always returned home each summer to visit “at the same time” and wonderful memories were made sitting on the front porch enjoying the views and sounds of Rudolph Falls on the North Fork Cherry River.
After the passing of Ira and Winnie, the original house eventually had to be torn down due to decline. The Crews family has now expanded to six generations and thanks to the efforts of a great-grandson, a brand new Crews deluxe cabin has been built to continue the tradition of hosting Crews family members yearly. This cabin will give them an opportunity to sit on that covered front porch in rocking chairs and start making more multi generational family memories.
They have decided to open the cabin doors for guests to visit and to experience Richwood and the many recreational outdoor opportunities nearby. History of the past Crews family can be seen throughout the new cabin with some original furniture, pictures and items.
We invite you to visit and enjoy our Crews Cabin by the Falls and begin making family memories of your own.
