The West Virginia Everettville Historical Association (WVEHA) is dedicated to preserving our past.
We preserve the past of the Everettville, West Virginia area through the research of Family Histories (Genealogy), cemetery readings, replacement of Veterans Markers, and by restoring the lost history from the coal camps, stone quarries, and the hard working farmer.
Our projects center on education and preservation of history.
The WVEHA is in the process of funding a Miners Memorial and park to pay tribute to the 149 men who died in the Federal No.3 Mine. A memorial service is held annually for these men in Everettville, Monongalia County, West Virginia. This will pave the way for other miners memorials to be placed in the park. Consolidation Coal Company donated approximately 25 acres at the pit-mouth for this purpose. Please take a few moments to browse the website to learn more about the park and other projects the WVEHA are involved in.
You can learn more about the history of the Federal No. 3 mine and the impact of the mine on the surrounding community at the Miner's Memorial Park history website.
