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.
