COVER PHOTO: The Pursglove No. 2 coal tipple and loaded New York Central Railroad cars illustrate Scotts Run's industrial claim to fame. By 1930, the virtual collapse of mining in this area of Monongalia County, WV, stranded thousands of coal camp residents and caught the attention of local and national relief organizations.
