Millionaire Row: Bramwell, West Virginia

Bramwell, West Virginia, is the heart of coal country. During the late 19th/early 20th century fortunes were made in coal. Bramwell, named for JH Bramwell, a civil engineer, held 14 millionaires. Their homes exhibit this wealth.

Start your tour at the Visitor Center. Here background is given regarding the town and a map can be obtained explaining home locations and history.

First stop.. Main Street and the Bryant/Newbold Pharmacy where delicious quick meals and even more delicious ice cream can be purchased. .

Then on to the homes…

My favorite

The homes are not open to the public but it is an enjoyable experience to merely view them from the outside. Many have gardens which adorn the homes.
