#1 I was raised in a small coal mining town called Clinchco, Virginia!
I grew up in a very small town in Southwest Virginia known as Clinchco. This town only has a population of nearly 400 people! Most of you are probably thinking “I had twice as many in my high school graduating class that she has in her ENTIRE hometown?!” This town was once based off of coal mining. My father has been a coal miner since the age of 16. In this town there is not many different things to do besides coal mining!
A major attraction to Clinchco is the Coal Miners Memorial Stone! This is a stone that shows the names of fallen coal miners in the area. Many people from all over the United States come to Clinchco to view this memorial.
This town might seem small, which it is, but the people in Dickenson County, Virginia are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Its a town where everyone knows everyone. Whether you are going to TTT to get groceries or to Riverside to get your spring flowers, you will always be greeted with a smile, a wave, or a handshake from the people of Clinchco, Virginia!
