Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Exeter VA

Exeter (EX-eh-ter) is one of several coal towns that hubbed around Appalachia.  It is a residential community.  It was established sometime near the beginning of the last century as a living area for the people who worked the local coal mines.  Many of these drift (or deep) mines closed in the 1920s and 30s.
