WV History: Beckley Coal and Coke Co / Raleigh Coal and Coke Co

I found a book recently on the Coal Industry in Raleigh and Fayette Counties (West Virginia). From that book, I posted a handful of pictures of Draft Animals. I had a few requests to see any photos of various mines that I found. This blog includes all of the photos and data I could find on the Beckley Coal and Coke Company in Raleigh County, West Virginia.

I preface by saying I am not an expert on the coal industry or Beckley Coal and Coke or the Raleigh County area. Please point out in errors in my descriptions and I will change titles as verified.

Raleigh Coal and Coke – are they the same as Beckley Coal and Coke?
