New Straitsville history:

The New Straitsville Mining Company founded the town in 1870 and it grew rapidly as the coal mining florished at that time. By 1880 there were over 4000 residents. In 1884, during a labor dispute at the mine, some miners set fire to a coal car and sent it into the mine. This caused an underground fire so great that the water from local wells couild be drawn hot enough to make coffee. The fire is still burning today. Needless to say, the coal mine days in New Straitsville ended that day in 1884.
