Coal National Heritage Area

Description:

The 5300 square mile National Coal Heritage Area lies in southern West Virginia, a region shaped by the history of coal deposits found in its ancient mountains. Today, the area's communities retain much of their original character as "company towns," reflecting local traditions, immigrant laborers and the dominance of the coal industry.
