It is pretty sad that “the story of McDowell County” in the national media is of death and illness…another reason why a community-led project like Hollow is needed.
This is the story in McDowell County, West Virginia: People are dying at younger ages, dying from a lack of care and, in many cases, from a loss of hope. Norma Jean Rose sits with her granddaughter Terri Amber Whitt, 9 in Raysal, West Virginia. Because she doesn’t work and has no savings, she often has to decide sometimes between eating and paying for her medicines. She has heart trouble, and is a diabetic.
Before designers refined a vision for automotive-era service stations, they toyed with tudor and oriental styles, now historical. This tudor station at Bramwell, W.Va., is an excellent example.
