Meredith P. Ruffner House
This house at 1636 Kanawha Boulevard was built for wholesale grocer Meredith Ruffner in about 1890. Ruffner, along with A.L. Ruffner and others, owned and operated the Ruffner Hotel, which was the largest building in Charleston at the time, except for the Capitol building. The frame house features overlapping shingles in different shapes.
