The home, at 324 Cobun Avenue, was built c. 1906. Originally owned by one of Morgantown’s most famous citizens, E.C. Wiedebusch, the home was an early adopter of indoor plumbing and heating. It likely gained this modern convenience due to the fact that its owner was a local entrepreneur in the plumbing and heating business.

According to Morgantown Magazine, the most notable of these are “the Methodist Episcopal Church and the former Strand Theatre.
