Thurmond became a boomtown in the early 1900s, thanks to the thriving local coal business. Situated along the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway, the town’s saloons, hotels, and stores catered to coal barons and business travelers. Eventually, as the coal industry declined, Thurmond dried up too, with most residents opting to move on. Today, only five people officially live there.
The town remains largely untouched from its heyday, giving visitors a rich look into our not-too-distant past.
