The States of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Western Maryland are home to some very special people. Believe me we know. My wife and I have traveled from Canada to Mexico. We have roamed across the entire “lower 48” of this great country. In our travels, we have met some wonderful people in every state and from all walks of life. But as the old saying goes, there is no place like home.

Likewise, there are no people like “Mountain Folks” especially those of the Coal producing States of the Appalachian Mountains.

Our mission goal at Kentucky Tennessee Living is to “Boldly Claim the Coal Mining History of Mountain Folks and the Coal Camp towns of Appalachia.” To Highlight the Parks and Events in and around the Coal Camps and to spark an interest in tourism to those areas of the States.
Our greatest desire is to Promote the Miners, Storytellers, Artists, Musicians, Photographers, and Craftsmen who keep our heritage alive while working to build a better tomorrow for the People of the Mountains.
