A key component in our work at Blair is preserving the Blair Mountain battlefield. Currently, it is threatened with destruction by five separate surface mining permits. Our program involves challenging permits on a permit-by-permit basis to ensure that compliance with existing laws is occurring, working with other partners to get the Blair Mountain battlefield put back on the National Register of Historic Places, facilitating research (especially archaeological) to continue to highlight the vast importance of the Blair Mountain battlefield, and many more methods.

 

A good way to stay informed of our current efforts, accomplishments, and challenges is to sign up for our newsletter. If you would like to be an active participant in the preservation process, please contact us.

Together, we will save Blair Mountain and build a better future!
