Looking toward the ball field I think of the Lumberjacks winning season, for those who don't live near Richwood anymore, the Lumberjacks have done us all proud, one game short of a state championship! Check out The Register-Herald, Beckley, West Virginia
(http://www.register-herald.com/sports/local_story_349001319.html) Richwood trio honored.
Looking toward the area of Richwood's Plaza, I recall that the world's largest clothespin factory was once located there. Originally the Dodge Pin Factory, it became the Steele-Wallace Corporation of St. Louis in 1915. In 1921, it was sold to a New England firm. (During World War II, the clothespin factory had to stop making wire pins due to shortages of steel.
You can't miss the big lumber mill in this photo, originally the Georgia-Pacific, Eastern Hardwoods Division Plant, it became the Collins Company Hardwoods Plant 19 August 2005, which covers 29 acres. Where you see neat lumber stacks, a dry kiln, and number of sheds for loading and unloading.
