Tazewell County, Virginia

Incredible in its attention to detail, this history of Tazewell County, Virginia—its people, towns, development, and progress—will prove a valuable addition to the libraries of natives, historians, and genealogists alike. The work delves into the original settling of the region and the discovery of vast coal deposits, especially the Pocahontas Coal Field.

Each town’s growth is studied, as is the natural history of the county. Other chapters explore such topics as the Indians of Tazewell County, Burkes Garden, agriculture, business and industry, politics, forts and mills, roads and railroads, post offices, churches and religion, homes, war and soldiers, schools and education, and people. A final chapter, titled “Stories,” combines both fact and fiction. Having been passed, in many instances, from generation to generation, the stories give a unique picture of Tazewell life. Over 350 illustrations and a new comprehensive index make this Tazewell County history complete.
