Nuttleburg - mining ghost town

West Virginia is a huge coal mining state.
Nuttleburg was a mining town built in 1870s.
The production lasted in till 1958. 
All that is left is empty buildings and structure-less foundations. 
The coal would be loaded from the mountain above and brought down to trains that were waiting to load.
A train would pull under and the coal would dump into the cars.

 There was about 10-15 smokers that lined the trail.

 This used to be the "store" for the town.

There were lots of other structures in the area but we stuck to just this section.
It was a really interesting place that I am sure I will be back to to explore more.
