Nemours, West Virginia

( 1904 )

This southern West Virginia community has a story to tell. From 1904 to 1950 workers of the E.I. DuPont Nemours Company facility in Mercer County produced untold tons of black powder explosives. The plant was situated in the very shadow of the massive sandstone outcropping, known as Pinnacle Rock. Nemours is located on the banks of the Bluestone River, just a few miles from the town of Bramwell. With the exception of a few out-buildings, the wheel mills are the only remnants of the once massive complex. This town is a feature article in the "Wonderful" West Virginia magazine by Bill Archer for the month of May 1999.
