Old Miners Chapel

Subject

Description

This building was known as Miner's Chapel in which the miners worshiped. A movement led by the women of Mineral City, many of whom were members of the Anti-Saloon League of Virginia, founded many churches in the town by 1920. The churches sought to end the negative influences of mining and to provide a place of worship to the families of the miners. The block on which the Church of the Incarnation now stands on Rt. 522 North once housed six or seven saloons. The campaign worked as the sale of liquor was eventually banned in Mineral.
