|Area Map of Nuttalburg|
John Nuttall, the namesake of the town, was born in England and after coming to America began opening coal mines. Nuttallburg was the home to several different coal companies over the years, but perhaps the most historic company was Fordson Coal and owned by a man named Henry Ford. Today in Nuttallburg you can see the remains of houses, the company store, buildings, coke ovens, churches, schools, roads, railroads, a suspension bridge, tipple, depot, and conveyor. The town had a church and school for the white residents and a separate church and school for the black residents.
The main feature in the town is the rehabilitated tipple and conveyor.
There is also a well preserved row of coke ovens which were used to turn coal into a fuel called coke.
The pillars from the suspension pedestrian bridge that crossed the New River are also still standing. The bridge was designed in 1899 by John Roebling, who also designed the Brooklyn Bridge, and connected Nuttallburg to South Nuttall. It was closed for safety issues around the time the mine closed.
