McDowell County

McDowell County, West Virginia is one of the
poorest counties in the nation.

 

The population of McDowell County was over 100,000 during the 1950s when coal was king. Although McDowell County remains a top producer of coal, 70,000 jobs were lost in the 1970s and later due to reduced demand for coal used in the steel industry coupled with increased mechanization. Ironically, more than half of the electricity produced in the US is generated from coal, and more coal has been mined in McDowell County than any other county in West Virginia.

 

Now, the 18,456  people remaining here face formidable obstacles.
