Peter G. Van Winkle House

The Peter G. Van Winkle House (Now commonly referred to as the Van Winkle-Wix House) is a house located in the Julia-Ann Square Historic District in Parkersburg, WV.

The house was built in 1836 by Peter Van Winkle in what was at the time a portion of eastern Virginia. The building has undergone many changes since being initially constructed as a 2 story residence, with most coming in the years 1875-1899. The third floor and the north wing as well as the turrets and spires were all added through the years. Additionally, the entrance, which originally faced Murdoch Avenue to the west, was reversed to face Ann St, as it currently does.
