Bulltown Historic District In 1863 Confederate forces led by William L. "Mudwall" Jackson, cousin of "Stonewall" Jackson, attempted to overtake Union fortifications on a knoll overlooking a key bridge that once crossed the Little Kanawha River along the Weston-Gauley Turnpike. At the hilly site are Union trenches, the graves of seven Confederate soldiers and intact sections of the Turnpike. The district also features the restored Cunningham farm that reflects the period living conditions of the area. The Bulltown Historic Center, complete with costumed staff, features artifacts from the battle.
