PARKERSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA PROPERTY EST. 1889 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES In 1889, local businessman and entrepreneur William Chancellor began a legacy of culture and sophistication with The Blennerhassett Hotel, which has played host to over a century of businessmen and tycoons. Touches such as lavish crown mouldings and extravagant light fixtures captivated guests with their splendor.
