This month Paul Henderson is hosting an ActiveRain contest/challenge titled "March 2017 challenge, Tell me the most unique or special place you have lived." I wrote a post in 2009, Memories of my childhood home - A Coal Miner's Daughter.  Born in Northfork, West Virginia, in McDowell County, my family lived in Burke Hollow above the mine of the Eastern Gas and Fuel Coal Company.    We lived in a company house that belonged to the mining company and bought our groceries at the company store.  I believe for most miners....they did owe their soul to the company store, as noted in the song by Tennessee Ernie Ford's "16 Tons".  I was five years old when we moved from this area.  If you want to read more, check out the above link. For this challenge, there are really two special places for me...

  The Winter Music Festival will be January 28th in downtown Lewisburg. First, I wanted to provide readers some background on this Winter Music Festival.   In 2013, Lewisburg and Greenbrier Valley, West Virginia area musicians organized a fundraiser to benefit a fellow musician who had experienced a house fire resulting in total loss of his family’s home and possessions. The collaborative event was so successful in drawing upon the community's support, that the desire to bring the community together to assist with such unfortunate situations grew into an annual event. The event became known as the Greenbrier Valley Winter Music Festival. The musicians that organized the first event went on to established the West Virginia Winter Music Festival Inc., in the Fall of 2015, as a way to perp...
