Whipple Company Store
Coal mining history comes alive in Fayette County
The Whipple Company Store in the Coal mining "heyday" provided most everything the coal miner and his family would need. Although the Company Store had its benefits to the coal miner, it did not go without reputation. The coal companies owned the store, the goods, the miner, and their money.
Whipple Company Store was designed by the Coal Baron,Justus Collins. A man of strong will and merit. This store is one of 4 he had built.All in this unique architectural fashion, and today the only one left standing. This old structure is a sight to see and has a lot of history and stories its old walls can tell.
