Pocahontas, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was Virginia's first coalfield boom town. Today, Pocahontas preserves its coal mining heritage. Visitors can tour the world's first Exhibition Coal Mine, a National Historic Landmark and Virginia's Official Coal Heritage Zone, and see spectacular 13 foot tall coal seams. Step into the Old Power House, which has been converted into a Museum and Educational Center, and see many exhibits of our rich coal mining heritage. Visitors can tour the 1883 Company Store-now a restaurant, the Victorian Opera House and historic Catholic church.
