Nuttallburg was the site of an old coal town built around a mining complex in the New River Gorge National Park.  As a National  Park Service project, the area was rehabilitated to allow visitors to explore the ruins of the town and mine operation.  Although accommodations were developed for the visitors, care was taken to maintain as much of the site in the same condition as it might have been when the mine was still functioning.  On-site  materials were used as much as possible and new materials were selected that would "age" quickly to reflect the historic nature of the site.
