Since I was in the area, I decided to take a little side trip to the sleepy town of Matewan (pop. 600), nestled on the Kentucky-West Virginia border in the far southwest corner of the state. Matewan, despite its on-the-surface irrelevance, is actually the site of two completely separate and notable events: it was the center of the infamous Hatfield-McCoy feud, and it was the site of a labor/management standoff which turned violent, depicted in the John Sayles film titled (aptly) Matewan.
One other pic on this page, although it's from the next day... this shot is of a historically preserved old gas station on US Route 501 at Gallivants Ferry, South Carolina (where US 501 crosses either the Lumber or Little Pee Dee River, depending on who you ask).
