Thurmond, today a largely abandoned town in the scenic New River Gorge and administered by the National Park Service, it used to be a booming center along the C&O Railroad line for the first half of the 20th century. Visiting Thurmond has a unique atmosphere and takes one back in time when coal and the railroad were crucial to the U.S. economy. It also illustrates transience in history.
