Hardy County has many homes with Victorian detailing but only a few truly Victorian designed homes. One of the most notable is the Friddle House on South Main Street in Moorefield. The three story house is a wonderful example of Queen Ann Victorian architecture with its fish scale siding and gingerbread trim. The interior of the house is equally impressive with ornate woodwork.
Robert A. Wilson, who was a merchant and mayor of Moorefield, built the home in 1906. After Robert’s death, Arno and Gladys Friddle, for whom the house is known, purchased the property in 1933. It remained as a private residence until the Friddle’s sold the house in 1984 to Harold K Michael who converted the structure into office space.
In 2005, Cynthia A Hinkle purchased the home and continued to utilize it as an Insurance Agency until 2015. Many upgrades were completed to include a new heating system, insulation and new siding, as well as an addition of a new sun room. The interior of the home has been upgraded as well.
