Pocahontas, Virginia – Between Two Hills

I really like what Dan Traveling puts out on video. His travel shorts are just enough to whet your appetite for a visit on your own while his documentaries give you in depth looks at parts of the country you would probably miss.

Here is a video from last year he did about the history of  Pocahontas, Virginia.

Pocahontas is a town in Tazewell County, Virginia, named for the Algonquian Native American princess Pocahontas. The population was 441 at the 2000 census… Pocahontas was the location of the start of this region’s coal boom with a spur line that launched the Norfolk and Western Railroad (now Norfolk Southern) into national prominence during the 1880s. The large two-state coal region bears the town’s name. Pocahontas was also the birthplace of jazz pianist Teddy Weatherford.
