Matewan WV is a great place to train watch. It is site of the Matewan Massacre in 1908, when coal miners attempted to Unionize the last non-union county in WV wearing red handkerchiefs - the source of the term redneck. There is a great museum there, but the town will change soon with the construction of an Interstate highway.
