Carter Coal Company Store

-A A +A
c. 1912, 1922. South side of McDowell County 3 at center of Coalwood

As originally built, the regular facade of this long, low, brick structure provided few architectural clues that it held three separate operations within: company offices, company store, and post office. When Consol acquired Coalwood, management added a six-bay addition to the west to provide more office space. The building is now vacant.
