Preserving Pocahontas

Pres. Poca






A fine team of horses, Dixie on the left and Master Jack on the right, pulls a wagon on its approach to the wooden bridge crossing the Greenbrier River in Marlinton. The photo was taken around 1912 and is in the Historical Society’s Fannie Golden Overholt Collection. In the background, at left, is the old Marlinton Hospital. On the right appears to be the Staton Building, originally named the Cunningham Building, which was home to The Pocahontas Times when it moved to Marlinton from Huntersville. The steeple is that of the Marlinton Presbyterian Church. Courtesy of Pocahontas County Historical Society, ID: PHS006132
