At the crossroads of history
The town of Matewan was strategically located halfway between the homes of Devil Anse Hatfield and Randle McCoy, putting it right in the middle of the most famous feud in American history. It was also the site of the Matewan Massacre - an event that led to the largest battle in America since the Civil War. Matewan truly was at the crossroads of history and it is the perfect place to learn about these two fascinating and important chapters of our nation’s history.
