Great vid. Very interesting. Thanks from Massachusetts.
that was a powder magazine not an oven and probably a blasting cap magazine judgeing from the size
The green stuff where the water is dripping is algae/moss.
It didn't claps when they block off a abandoned Cole mine they shove rock as far back as they can then but the bars up to seal off
Creepy ??????? Something that could kill you ????????
Its a state park…….There were other visitors there ??????
The idea for this video is great, but you should have been more prepared for it not knowing what is what. And you need to be less jerky with the camera moving it around so fast. It makes your viewers get seasick. And it not an abandoned town, its an abandoned work-site.
"This waters green, I'm sure that is some kind of chemical or... it doesn't seem safe!" same people that say, "Oh, the God, theres a UFO!, must be an alien life-form!"
3 mins in. And it’s all I can take. The camera man is horrible. Dislikedand reported. Hopefully this channel doesn’t show up in my feed again.
I’m from this area. It’s obvious you didn’t do your homework and have no clue what you are doing.
You forgot to add the music dueling banjos🤠🎻🎶
Typical tourists. Please learn how to slowly move the camera. Verigo. Really a waste of time watching more than 3 minutes.
My grandfather went to nuttall schools he just passed away at 93. There is a very rich history there. I now live in beckley w.v
Get motion sickness from this camera work!🤢
Here is comment i left for you at Thurmond: Too bad you young city people come in and show your ignorance and
disrespect. These were real people who lived here and contributed
greatly to the successes that took place and made it possible for you
bounce around the countryside adding absolutely nothing to our nation.
That was the time of the "ruthless outsider city slicker coal barons who
raped, plundered and pillaged the land and the people and put nothing
back." Btw, Hollywood filmed the famous movie MATEWAN, which was the
true story of those coal barons who worked to turn West Virginia into a
'third world nation', here in Thermond a couple decades ago.... not
that really added anything important to the Nation. This area of WVa
is the third congressional district which has the distinction of being
ranked by the GALLUP HEALTHWAYS POLL in the worst condition nationally
[out of 436 congressional districts in the US] every single year since
it began. This is the region where the term "REDNECK" came into being.
the REDNECKS were coal miners who were literally fighting to unionize
against these massivlely evil coal barons just to stay alive. The
REDNECKS wore a "red handkerchief' around their neck while in battle in
the mountains against the Baldwin-Felts thugs. That was the setting for
the MATEWAN movie; the town of Matewan is just up the track. And, now,
if you are going to act this way in the future, go film in San
if your going to see history and talk about it get your facts straight with locals instead of guessing
Obvious from the dialogue that you hadn't done your homework on coal mining and didn't know what you were looking for or at. This is really not fair for your viewers. This is the first posting of Abandoned America I have seen and hope others you have made are significantly better researched. The videographer needs some serious basic training to upgrade his/her skills. If not, stick to stills.

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
