Adaland is a historic house located at Berryburg, Barbour County, West Virginia.
It was built in 1868 and is a two story, "L"-shaped, Greek Revival style brick house. It sits on a cut fieldstone foundation on top of a hill with an excellent view of the surrounding hills, farms, mines, and gardens. Also on the property are a contributing carriage house (1872) and 19th century barn. The property was purchased by West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals Justice Ira E. Robinson in 1920. It is open as a historic house museum.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. In 1996, the house and surrounding properties were donated to the City of Philippi, West Virginia by a nearby coal company. The house is now maintained by a private non-profit organization and is open for various types of tours, teas, weddings, luncheons, dinner theaters, and other occasions.

  • Wonderful tour and awesome tour guide! Our guide, Jeannie M., really knows her subject. This was the first time that we heard about a traveler's room where anyone too tired or lost could stay free for the night with dinner and breakfast. Jeannie was an experienced guide telling us only what added to the history and interest of the mansion. She was animated and loved what she is doing. Thank you!
  • Just love old stuff and simpler times gone by, believe I'd do it on the porch. Then have the ol lady plow the back 40, bowlegged and naked.
