Love your site!
Would love to see pictures or any info about Marting, a coal town that used to be somewhere around where Mt. Olive prison is now, up Cannelton Hollow. My family was from there originally. I have driven past there many times but don't know where to begin to look for the location of the town.
Thank you,

Admin reply: Marting was about halfway between Smithers and Mt. Olive. If you look at Google Satellite View, The first big horseshoe curve was Marting. Fourmile Fork runs into that curve. There is a lot of surface mining still going on that you can also see.

Thanks for this site. I grew up in St. Albans in the '60's. Your photos certainly bring me back; the radio, downtown shopping and dining,places we hung out. Visited this past September and saw all the changes. Hope they are good for people living there, they mostly were not for me. Too many places important to me long gone. Wish you well as you continue growing this site, I'll be following

I live in the Pittsburgh area now but most all my family still lives in the same area that I grew up around Charleston. I love going in and looking at the amazing photographs that you have assembled on your website. It's so refreshing to see what was. I'm 55 and really love the 70's and 80's posts. Thank you for helping to keep our memories alive. West Virginia is truly a magnificent place. It has it all...beautiful hills, maundering rivers, and the best people in the world!

I love the pictures of the old Charleston General hospital. I live on top of where it was originally so it is quite interesting to see the history of the hospital and area.

Hello I love your site. It's very interesting seeing and learning about the beauty of days gone by. I just have a quick request. I have been searching for a long time for any photos that show the 2 ponds that used to be in Marmet Wv. I'm not sure of the names but I do remember them being very close to the road and sometimes cars would go in. If you or any of your visitor's know of any available photos please let me know were I can see them.

Admin reply: I've not even seen old photos of Marmet yet.

Went to Lincoln Jr High and frequently ate lunch at Chris' on Washington St. My mom wasn't too happy about it when she found out it was a bar, but I loved his barbecue beef sandwiches. Haven't seen any pictures of it on your website and was wondering if you have seen any.

Admin reply: Sorry, but no I haven't.

I was born there, but my family moved to St. Petersburg, Florida in the 70's. All my life I've had dreams about West Virginia though: some of the prettiest places on Earth!

Jerry, thank you for the compelling photos of the flood and its aftermath. A question: Have you ventured out Blue Creek to the Camp Galahad and former Carbide Camps locations? I worked at Galahad for all or part of ten summers in the 1960s and 1970s and have been wondering about that camp in particular, given that it was still standing, as of last summer. (I recall that we met, Jerry, during the Carbide Camps reunion last summer, You had four-wheeled it out there.) Keep up the nice work. I love your website. Joe Wyatt

Admin reply: Yes, I went out there a week after the flood, and posted pictures on the Carbide Blue Creek Facebook page. Little damage out there except for parts of the old road. Camp Galahad has been sold to a family, (There's a story in itself) and they are living on the property now.
