Pond Creek Substation

Photo contributed by Roten Cooper.



This old Substation is located about 2 miles up in Dark Hollow, Raysal,Wv.

My family was the last ones to live in this hollow. We lived here from 1952 until 1957.We had a three room house just above this substation. Bert and Laura Rose Whitt lived there before us. Albert Dare lived in the old substation for about 6 months after Noah and Oma Mullins Cooper. This was my mom and dad.

After Albert Dare moved out, my aunt Ora Mae Cooper Whitt and her husband Willie Whitt moved into the old substation.They had 3 or 4 children at that time. My aunt lived there  about 2 years before they moved out. This was 1953 to 1954.
