Overview
Ever driven past an old house, a ruined pile of bricks and mortar, or an abandoned quarry and wondered what happened there? Probably not. But the ruins that remain from the past can be keys to unlocking the hidden history of a place. After Gary Clites finished his previous books, Ridgeley and Carpendale, West Virginia From 1750: A History and A Photographic History of Ridgeley and Carpendale, West Virginia, people kept contacting him to tell him about, or to ask about, historic sites in the Cumberland and Mineral County areas. Interested, he began researching the historic locations they talked about. The result was a journey through the small pieces of history that make up the legacy of the greater Cumberland area. This book details 43 historic places in the area: Historic homes, ruins of factories, abandoned quarries and kilns, even the possible discovery of a long lost French and Indian War era fort. Whether you simply read the stories of these lost places or actually get in your car and visit the pieces that remain, their locations and history are all included here along with 261 historic and contemporary photos and maps.
