  • Finally! These are the last photos of Pocahontas! It has taken forever, it seems, to complete this series of a most enjoyable three hours in a fading Virginia town. This is a creative commons image, which you may freely use by linking to this page. Please respect the photographer and his work. [This is a set of 7 photos] Close to the north end of Centre Street, across the street from the Town Hall are the remains of 2 of the once 27 saloons that flourished in Pocahontas, despite Tazewell County, Virginia, being a legally "dry" county. Both the Elkhorn Saloon (1883) and Silver Dollar Saloon (1894) sported partial metal front facades--the parapet showing the dates of the structures (on wood in the case of the Elkhorn and metal for the Silver Dollar), the cornice and the window crowns. My assumption is that the metal portions are Mesker products. Both saloons show subtle ornamental touches (terra cotta decoration, window crowns, a diamond pattern in the cornice, etc.) that mark the use of decoration in the most mundane of commercial structures of the time. The top part of the Elkhorn Saloon is quite symmetrical in design and consists of a peaked metal pediment/cornice with brackets and a circular decorative motif between the brackets. Below is a section of brick then a course of what appears to be ornamental terra cotta in squares filled with a leafy pattern. This same ornamental device appears in the vertical side pilasters and below the windows. Four windows are displayed on the upper level, all 2/2 with metal crowns and wooden frames and with what seems to be stone sills. The bottom level has undergone alterations, probably in concession to modern (at the time) tastes--a mixed assortment of window shapes, two sections of glass block, a black portion that could be a material such as vitrolite, and some sort of siding in long rectangular sections. The structure had two doors, the recessed one on the right leading to the saloon proper and the door on the left leading to the second level. The Silver Dollar (1894) has a metal pediment/cornice with two brackets and two end pieces. There are three panels, two filled with an elongated diamond shape. Below this are several courses of brick and probably terra cotta mixed. In two places the bricks are exposed, exposing building techniques. The windows are placed symmetrically in the upper level, 2/2 with wooden frames and hooded window crown. The windows extend vertically to the metal division between the two floors. The bottom level has apparently undergone remodeling at one time with a different brick pattern and type. There's one narrow glass pane and two doors, each with three horizontally oriented panes. This structure is part of the Pocahontas Historic District, listed on National Register, added November 3, 1972 with identifying number 72001418. ------------------------------------ Virginia's first coalfield boom town, Pocahontas (in Tazewell County, Virginia) boasted of its prosperity with numerous metal-front stores; however, much has changed since its height of prosperity. At one time Pocahontas had 27 saloons! Two structures I was most interested have disappeared, gone perhaps 10-12 years ago. Today a sense of decay permeates the town, the remaining buildings with altered front facades at street level; however, the upper level is often intact. Centre Street runs north-south. Business structures stop at Church Street in the south. One block north is the cross street, Saint Claire Street (I'm using the spelling of the street sign). The one block of West Saint Claire is a treasure for the architecturally curious with a town hall-opera house and a bank. Continuing south for a couple of more blocks, the west side of Centre Street is relatively intact. The east side has two empty blocks where buildings have been demolished.

On Centre Street at the north end of town, the former Bank of Pocahontas is now used as the town office. This 2-story stone structure erected in 1901 has a hip roof with a prominent front dormer consisting of two small windows. The roof line extends well over the edge of the building, the soffit containing brackets which are barely visible in this image. Fenestration is conventional on the second level with three 1/1 windows. On the bottom floor are two windows, both with arched panes at the top. The entrance has simulated columns with a pediment above. This structure is part of the Pocahontas Historic District, listed on National Register , added November 3, 1972 with identifying number 72001418. ------------------------------------ Virginia's first coalfield boom town, Pocahontas (in Tazewell County, Virginia) boasted of its prosperity with numerous metal-front stores; however, much has changed since its height of prosperity.

[This set has 5 photos] On north Centre Street in Pocahontas, Virginia, this structure dates from 1894 and housed the post office, the coal company's doctor's office and the Radford Trust Company, the first bank in Pocahontas. The roof is conceivably flat with a metal cornice ornamented with a floral pattern on the front facade. The bottom most portion of this metal part is the classical egg and dart motif. The orange brick on the upper level differs in color from the bottom level. There are three pairs of windows in a symmetrical arrangement, all with stone sills and wooden frames. Five vertical lines of red bricks slant upward from each window. Above each window is a recessed panel. A metal course with dentillation separates the two floors of the building. The first floor is of red brick and displays simulated rustication. The four door and four windows are not symmetrically positioned with a decorative pattern between them. I don't know what it's current use may be Further information on rustication is at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rustication_(architecture) This structure is part of the Pocahontas Historic District, listed on National Register , added November 3, 1972 with identifying number 72001418. ------------------------------------ Virginia's first coalfield boom town, Pocahontas (in Tazewell County, Virginia) boasted of its prosperity with numerous metal-front stores; however, much has changed since its height of prosperity. At one time Pocahontas had 27 saloons! Two structures I was most interested have disappeared, gone perhaps 10-12 years ago. Today a sense of decay permeates the town, the remaining buildings with altered front facades at street level; however, the upper level is often intact. Centre Street runs north-south. Business structures stop at Church Street in the south. One block north is the cross street, Saint Claire Street (I'm using the spelling of the street sign). The one block of West Saint Claire is a treasure for the architecturally curious with a town hall-opera house and a bank. Continuing south for a couple of more blocks, the west side of Centre Street is relatively intact. The east side has two empty blocks where buildings have been demolished.
