Announcing the opening of the brand new Hatfield McCoy Country Museum. The museum features one-of-a-kind artifacts from the region’s history and informational displays about the Hatfield McCoy Feud, our coal heritage and more.

You will see items that were actually touched by Devil Anse Hatfield, Johnse Hatfield, Sid Hatfield, Henry Ford and other important historical figures.

Items on display include the not-guilty verdict for Sid Hatfield in his trial for the Matewan Massacre shootout: Henry Ford’s scrip making machine: the burial records for Devil Anse, Johnse, Cap and Levicy Hatfield: the death certificate and burial records for Mamie Thurman: the deed for the contested 5,000 acres of land that some believe started the Hatfield McCoy Feud: a gun found at the site of the Feud’s climatic battle – The Battle of Grapevine Creek and much more. Plus there will be items seen on American Pickers and authenticated by the Antiques Roadshow.

Other attractions include the interior of a 1920’s coal camp house, the Underground Theather that looks like the inside of a coal mine, the Bee Ward Coleman collection – one of the largest collections of coal mining artifacts anywhere in the country and unique displays about the Hatfield McCoy Feud, coal mining and our region’s rich history.

The museum is located at the former Williamson High School Building at 801 Alderson Street in Williamson, WV. Come as you are and enjoy one of the best museums in the state of West Virginia.

 

This project is supported in part by a grant from the National Coal Heritage Area Authority.
