Walnutta is a landmark historic home on 2.6 +/- acres in Pickaway just 15 minutes from Lewisburg, 5 minutes from Union and an easy 25 minutes from the world famous Greenbrier Resort.  Built in 1906, this 2 ½ story 6 bedroom stately home has many modern updates and is in the heart of the rural community with sweeping vistas of the surrounding farmland.

Walnutta was built in 1906 by Ellen Lively with the aid of a woman architect and is one of the few known works of an early twentieth century woman architect in West Virginia.  The home is a rather tall 2 ½ story Queen Ann Victorian style home with a gabled roof and German clapboard siding.  Originally designed in an L-shaped, the home has been filled out over the years.  Projecting 2 ½ story polygonal bays with pedimented gable roofs are to the south and west. The rooms all have exceptionally large windows allowing for fantastic natural light in the home.  An expansive wraparound porch complete with porch swing provides peaceful views across the rural countryside.  Sitting in the swing, one can enjoy many evenings of beautiful sunsets across the surrounding farmland.

Walnutta is located in the Pickaway Rural Historic District which is on the National Register of Historic Places and was featured in Morton’s 1916 book “Monroe County History.”


Walnutta is located on the southeast side of US 219, ½ miles south of “Pickaway Village”.
