Cigar Box Guitars
Hinton, WV's downtown is listed in the US Registry of Historic places. This ex-railroad hub's population was once 4x as big as it is now. There are beautiful abandoned Victorians, blocks of company rowhouses and 5 and 6 story office/apartments downtown...all empty. The setting is so beautiful as well...this entire area is one of the most beautiful places I've been. Ever. Yet it's slowly falling apart. There are no jobs here, no immigrant families, no young people. I'm posting some pictures that are less than artistic because I want to show what has happened here.
