WHIPPOORWILL CEMETERY

Whippoorwill Cemetery is now the
home to 48 gravesites of African-American workers who died from silicosis
during the development of the Hawks
Nest Tunnel. The graves were originally
on the nearby White Farm and contained more than one body. Through
the efforts of many people, the cemetery
was reclaimed and improved and is now
a Historic Site in Nicholas County.

LOCKWOOD
HISTORIC DISTRICT

This area is located on WV Rt. 39 and
is significant to the early settlement of
Nicholas County by Henry Morris, the
first settler on Peter's Creek. It is also the
site of the Morris Massacre, where two of
Henry's daughters, Betsy and Peggy, were
attacked by Indians near their home
as they walked through the clearing to
bring the cows for milking.

ONE ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE

Step back in time and visit a One Room
School House, located at the Nicholas
County Veterans Memorial Park. Students
in grades 1-8 worked and learned under
one teacher, and there were no electric
lights, running water, school buses or hot
lunch programs. The One Room School
House is furnished with desks and memorabilia of those days and serves as a tribute
to the more than 1,000 Nicholas County
one-room school teachers. The One Room
School House is open on Saturdays from
2pm-4pm June-Labor Day.
