The 1773 log Blan- Virginia Department of History and Culture met in Charleston October 4 and nominated to the national Register of Historic Places the Wyndrldge Farm Complex near Union and the Alderson Memorial Bridge in Alderson. The Alderson Memorial Bridge, built in 1914 through monies allocated by the county courts of both Greenbrier and Monroe counties, is the longest earth-filled reinforced concrete bridge in West Virginia, accord- ing to Monroe County historian Ran Ripley. It was designed and engineered by the famed West Virginia bridge builder Frank Duff McEnteer. It is considered significant both for Its beauty of design and as an early transpor- tation llnk between Monroe and Greenbrier Counties, Dr. Ripley said. The Wyndridge Farm Com- plex, 1-1/2 miles east of Union on Route 3, was nominated for its late 19th-century vernacular architectural design and its as- sociation with the early settle- ment of Monroe County. William Gaston Caperton Jr. built Wyn- drldge House in 1872. It con- tains two early two-story log ton House stands alongside the main house. Other" early log structures are flearby. The pioneer Blanton, Alexan- der, and Caperton families were instrumental in the development of Wyndridge. Many residents of the Union area remember Wyn- drldge as the home of Miss Rose Caperton. It is now owned by Judge James Sprouse. Sponsors of the Alderson Memorial Bridge nomination are the trustees of the Alderson Memorial Bridge Trust Fund and the Greenbrier Valley 1Jatlonal Bank in Alderson. Sponsor of the Wyndridge Farm nomination is the Monroe County Historical Society. Nomination forms for Wyndridge were prepared by Dr. Ripley and Virginia Campbell. Attending the meeting in Charleston in support of the nominations were Alice Todd Alderson and Mr. and Mrs. Le- onard Osborne of Alderson; and June Sprouse and Ronald Rlpley of Union Larry Dellard Wallcovering & Decorative Painting P.o.
