Matewan, WV is a small town located in the southern part of Mingo County. The town, now largely considered a ghost town, is perhaps most famous for playing roles in the Hatfield & McCoy Feud and the Matewan Mine Wars. The Heart of Matewan, WV has since been declared a historic district as a result. While many of the events relating to both the war and the feud did not happen directly within the Matewan Historic District itself, the area has since established a museum and a depot to commemorate them. Other highlights of the tour feature the old Nenni Department Store and the town's historic Flood Wall.
