Madie Carroll House

Mary Carroll saved her home from destruction, November 11, 1861, when Union troops burned most of the town of Guyandotte. She barricaded herself and children in the brick kitchen of the house. Today, the house is on the National Register of Historic Places. Tours are available by appointment.
