Point Lick School
Point Lick School was located just shy of 5 miles from the mouth of Campbells Creek.
Point Lookout School
Point Lookout School, on Allen Fork Rd, about 5 miles from RT21.
This would pace it very close to Railroad Hollow Road. School was built in 1893 and housed 34 kids.
Pond Gap School
Pond Gap Grade School. Go all the way up to the head of Kelly's Creek and hang a right to Pond Gap.
In its heyday, the coal-mining town of Putney at the head of Campbells Creek, had a population of about 1,500 and a workforce of 400 miners who produced more than 300,000 tons of coal per year.Passenger trains ran twice a day through the town, which included 100 company-owned houses, a company store, boardinghouse, community recreational facility, church, doctor's office and school. The school building in this photo is amazing, both for it's size, construction, and closeness to the RR tracks. While many schools were close to tracks, few were actually below grade like this.
As Putney has been gone for at least 50 years, there's nothing left but the cemetery. If you were in Putney today, you wouldn't know it.
The Quick School is still standing in downtown Quick WV. However, it's now a community Center.
