Coal Miner’s Memorial and Heritage Park, Quinwood, West Virginia

On my way home from Hardy VA, I stopped at the Coal Miner’s Memorial and Heritage Park in Quinwood, West Virginia, built where the old company store used to stand according to this site.

The names read like poetry.  There are names chiseled on both sides of the stone markers.

The day was overcast and chilly, more like football weather instead of the end of May.

I was thinking about the sign on Bleecker Street, NYC, advertising coal oven pizza and wondered where they get coal for their ovens.
