History

The town of Rome was founded at the junction of the Little and Big Coal rivers in the 1890s by the Childress Family. Soon the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway built a line along the Coal River to transport coal from the coal fields in Boone and Logancounties into the hub in nearby town of St. Albans. Soon the town grew and a town council was formed. The town officially changed its name to Alum Creek in 1910. A constable policed the town, although without a vehicle he relied on the generosity of locals to transport him from place to place. In 1922 a set of bridges were constructed across the Big and Little Coal rivers. It was also at approximately this time Union Carbide built a summer camp called Cliffside on the banks of the Coal River. The town flourished for the next half century with most of its residents working in either the mining industries or in chemicals. Two elementary schools were founded in the town, one being Alum Creek Elementary on the Kanawha Countyside, and Midway Elementary on the Lincoln County side. A high school was also built in the 1930s known as Washington District High School, after the tax district. WDHS was closed in 1980 due to school consolidation. In the mid-1970s U.S. Route 119 was constructed through Alum Creek, and brought a host of businesses into Alum Creek, however this did not help the town out of poverty due to a decline in the coal mining and chemical industries. The town is now seeing a comeback due to the expansion of business along Rt 119. Median income is on the rise, and the town has grown to encompass an area of over 17 miles.

Located near Alum Creek is Holley Hills Estate, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
