GOODWILL,WV COAL MINING CAMP SCHOOL
These three photographs feature the Goodwill Elementary School. The top photograph shows the Goolwill Elementary School as it existed in the 1940s. The middle photograph is how it looked in 1956. The bottom photograph is of coal miner Jim Poole ready for work with the Goodwill Elementary School in the background. This photo is from Alice Poole Pennington's collection; photo date unknown. This school closed in 1959. Nothing of the school remains, not even the rock wall. The children who attended this Goodwill School would later attend Montcalm School and would have graduated from Bramwell High School. In the top photograph you can see the "Outhouse" on the right side of the photograph.
