This neglected building was once the company store for the Cornett-Lewis Coal Company in Louellen KY. You have to give it to the coal companies, when they built for business or for municipal favor, they built strong.
Is this still standing? What about coal camp? Grandfather aunt and cousins lived in that camp until @ 1956
It was, as of a few months ago. The coal camp is mostly gone. There’s a lake now where 24 or so homes used to be. Check it out on Google Earth. We see so much of this – old coal towns, slowly mouldering away.
What about the trestle at clouds curve just before you get to louellen? There was a swinging bridge and a small theater. Are any of these left?
There’s just not much left at Louellen. These coal towns are mostly gone.
