History & History Related Items

Vicco history:

Vicco, Kentucky was named for Virginia Iron Coal and Coke Co., or VICCO, and was a twin city to Vicco, Virginia, near Coeburn, VA, southwest Virginia. Nearby communities, part of the Vicco community, include Anco, Kodak, perhaps linked to Kodak, TN, Sassafras and numerous creeks. The streams supply some of the headwaters of the Kentucky River.

Some have suggested renaming Vicco as Cherokee Springs, in light of the need to rebuild the coal community from faded glory days of the coal boom era of honky tonks, shoot-outs, shopping, mining, a high school, and high times. The once substantial population has plunged, but new roads, the nearby Carr Fork Lake, easy communications, and a desire to move ahead, may help rebuild the downtown strip, shopping and entertainment.
