I remember the Winebrenners. We also had a camp on the other side on land. My parents were Howard "Mopey" Cole, Jr. and Betty Cole. Ours was about dead center. As I remember the Winebrenners camp was one of the last camps toward the hydro.

Darn, J! That's too bad. It was the nicest building in town. I'll be driving through this Thanksgiving.
Yes. It's being permanently treated for mine drainage. They use limestone, and possibly other chemicals to keep the PH normal.
The Page Vawter House at Ansted is a Fayette County landmark, which is as treasured for its beauty as it is for its history. In 1890, the Gauley Mountain Coal Company built an elaborate mansion for its president and general manager on a knoll in the town of Ansted. No expense was spared on the interior of the house. Inside are 15 rooms, plus a dressing room and butler's pantry. Every room in the house is oak paneled with wainscoting. The woodwork includes door and window facings of solid walnut and floors of oak. Eleven fireplaces were included to heat the spacious mansion. Each fireplace has a ceramic tile hearth and carved Victorian mantel of cherry, oak and walnut. The originality and grace of its design has served to make the home one of the foremost landmarks in south central West Virginia.
It leads to Charleston, or... at least it did at one time. Going through the tunnel led to the Carbide mines at Sanderson.
