Product Overview

In 1893, a few businessmen purchased some land just west of Huntington, West Virginia, to develop a new community. Eventually, Central City--as it was called--bustled with industry, thriving on the five major factories that became the nucleus of the small city. Because of the booming job market, the community grew: families settled; homes, schools, and churches were built; and a government was established. When Central City was annexed into Huntington in 1909, the old industrial town all but disappeared, losing its own identity and rich history. Luckily, Central City''s heritage was saved in the late 1980s, when a reunion for early families was organized and funds were allocated by the City of Huntington for the community''s rebirth. Today Old Central City is touted as the Antique Capital of West Virginia and hosts Old Central City Days annually to commemorate the vibrant heritage of this almost-lost West Virginia town.
