Lorado WV Home in the Valley

Welcome to Lorado, West Virginia early 1900's through 1960's Lorado is a coal mining community near the head of Buffalo Creek in Logan County, West Virginia. Hundreds of us grew up there and can now only visit the good ole days in our minds, reminiscing with family and friends and visiting the Homepages of others. If you have any pictures, letters or other info you would like included please email them to me and I will gladly include them in the Lorado Photo album.
