Coalwood is located just off
of the National Coal Heritage scenic Highway. From Bluefield, follow US Rt.
52 north for just over 35 miles (over 1hr), and then turn left onto WV Rt.
16. Follow Rt. 16 for 4.7 miles and then turn right onto
Rd (County Rd 2). After 1 mile on
Rd, turn left into Coalwood.
Besides the somewhat lengthy
drive to Coalwood, be prepared to stop in and explore the bookstore and talk to
some of the old locals that have been there since the time of Homer Hickam and
the rocket boys.
