VA-X23 Appalachia

Marker text: X23 Appalachia
The town sprang up after the Louisville and Nashville Railroad and Southern Railroad made a junction here in 1890. Named for the Appalachian Mountains, in the heart of which it stands, it was incorporated in 1906; the streets were laid out in 1907. Appalachia, in the Jefferson National Forest Area, is the trading center of the Wise Coal Fields.
