Belfry was an active coal camp until the early 960s and was owned by the Eastern Coal Corporation, Bluefield, WV. I lived there in a company house from 1950 until 1960 while my Dad was employed in the Eastern mines. The houses were mostly four rooms with an outhouse. All houses were painted the same silver color but alternate houses had either a brown or green trim. Living in the coal camps was an experience that will never be duplicated. Lots of children and good neighbors. I treasure those memories.
