I grew up in Kanawha City (graduate of Capital High School 2007) my grandparents lived in Edgewood for a few years before they passed. Really incredible, fascinating information here. Have you ever considered publishing these photos in book format? They are just so rare and completely captivating. It would be a treasure to be able to put this collection in print. Your life sounds so interesting...especially the greyhound bus story on the day of the plane crash! Wow. Awesome labor of love here. Thank you.

Admin reply: Thanks! As there are several great books out on the subject, I cant see me adding anything of interest. :)

Mr Waters, What, if anything do you know of the Arlan's store fire? We lived on Spring Drive/Summers Ave in the late 60's and I can remember riding on my fathers shoulders as a very small child and watching the Fire department in action from the heights above the store. The store was very near the south side exit/entrance to the Patrick Street Bridger as I recall...(I was only about three at the time, so my memories are spotty) My father is passed now, and I am hoping to tkae my mom back up to Spring Drive this coming weekend and get some pictures of the old house we lived in.
Thanks...Love the site
J.C Morris :!cool:

Admin reply: Arlans opened in 1964 near the South end of the Patrick St Bridge. The fire happened on Thanksgiving morning in 1968. The West wall of the building was replaced and Arlans continued business into the early 70s.

I grew up in WV. St Albans, Dunbar and Nitro in the 1960's. There was more than one Rose City Cafeteria . Dowtown and near an indian mound in south charlestin/institute area. What is the name of the town at that mound? I always thought it was Moundsville but I see that town is located in the panhandle.

Love your website. My memories are Valley Drive Theatre St Albans. Price Theater Dunbar. Dunbar Lanes hot dogs. Any Shoneys Big Boy

Plaza Lounge Dunbar

I was a member of the Frankenbergers club when I was a boy. Master Sutler was written on the cards i got for Days etc.

Admin reply: There was a Rose City near the Mound in South Charleston. The Mound up north was the Grave Creek Mound in Moundsville.

I have enjoyed your website very much. With a lot of my family being from Kanawha County is is so nice to see the photos knowing that they were there at the early time.

A grandfather worked on a mill at Lock Seven (7) from 1895 to 1902. Would there be any photos of the mill ?

Admin reply: This is the only Mill that I have, near the bottom of this page: http://www.mywvhome.com/thirties/beach.html

Hi Jerry. Looking at your old school photo's and I have a couple of comments for you to research. The Unknown School looks like it could be the O'dell School located at Laurel Fork of Dutch Ridge around 38 deg 24 min N and 81 deg 22 min W. The lady on the right in the photo looks like my grandmother, Josephine Koontz, who taught there from the late 40's until 1960 when the school closed I believe. Also, I went to New Hope School, Pinch,from 3rd thru 6th grade 1958 thru 1962. School closed after that. You have 1952 on your pic. Will be waiting for your response to see if I am correct. Thank you for this site....it's great.

Admin reply: Thanks! I have a good friend who still lives in that area as his family has for generations and that area was named O'Dell after them. I will take the photo to him to see if he recognizes it.

Great site, sure brings back a lot of memories. I haven't seen everything yet, so will need to poke around for stores and places that I remember fondly. Thanks for doing this. If you ever need any help w/the site (proofreading, link indexing, etc.), just let me know. Would be glad to help! :D
