Nuttallburg Visitor Use Area Implementation Plan - Scoping

The National Park Service will prepare an Implementation Plan for the nationally significant historic resources at Nuttallburg. The Nuttallburg Mining Complex and town site is the most intact example of an early 20th century coal mining complex in the New River Gorge and West Virginia, and one of the most complete coal related industrial sites in the United States. The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to develop a new visitor use area that will encompass land within and adjoining the Nuttallburg Mining Complex and Town Historic District. The Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is nationally significant for its association with Henry Ford's revolutionary experiment from 1920 to 1928 to vertically integrate automobile production at his Rouge River Plant in Dearborn, Michigan, by controlling the supply and flow of raw materials needed for automobile manufacturing. It is also nationally significant for Henry Ford's use of engineering innovation at the site.
