Greetings to all folks near and far.
Here is my latest article from the Appalachia site at BellaOnline.com. This article is about a quaint little town that was once a booming coal mining town, where miners struggled and worked hard with little pay. They barely made enough to survive and feed their families. They had to shop for food at the company store which charge outrageous prices.
New Straitsville Ohio - Interesting History
The underground coal fire is a rather odd tourist attraction, but still people visit the area just to see if they can find where the smoke creeps out from several crevices in the grounds around the town.
Please come visit me in the Appalachia forum to discuss this or any of my articles. Old coal mining towns in the Appalachia regions is one of my favorite subjects for this site.
Till next time, may you walk in peace and harmony.
