Artist's Description

Once the powerhouse of the valley, region and state, the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Mill’s mill building stands in stark contrast to the natural world around it. In it’s heyday, this mill building turned the timber of Cheat Mountain into paper and timber. Now it is being reclaimed by the same forces it reached out and consumed …for the pleasure of the growing USA. economy of the early 20th century.

Still since 1960, it still casts an economic shadow over the valley. The property and rail line now the possession of the State of West Virginia. Over 50,000 people a year come to ride the rails and hear the tales of logging and steam engine majesty of days long gone.
