Re: San Toy, OH

Nice post 'kaydeechio'

Here is a little history on the town.... pretty rough place back then

Quote:
The town of San Toy, in Perry County Ohio. Between 1900 and 1927, San Toy was a prosperous company town. It was created by the Sunday Creek Coal Company to provide lodging for its employees at the two San Toy coal mines. Laborers came from local areas or were imported from places as far-flung as Europe; the ridge near San Toy is called Irish Ridge. When the Ku Klux Klan revived in the 1920's they targeted Catholic immigrants in San Toy, but the company hired men to run them off. In the mines, everyone was the same color. Mining is a notoriously dangerous occupation, and in San Toy regular blasting made it even worse. Frequent tremors shook the earth. Conditions were not the worst, but on occasion miners did die underground, as well as in the saloons. Some of the most famous stories surrounding San Toy are those of the acts of violence committed in its streets. Some legends say there was a murder a day, although that seems unlikely. What is likely is that it was a little town full of men who carried guns and had little to do when not working other than drink their paychecks and fight. According to Addison Vanhorn, a local, "It was a tough place. If you took a walk up the railroad tracks with a lantern, somebody'd shoot it out." In September 25, 1924, angry miners rolled a coal car full of burning railroad ties into mine #1, starting a fire which destroyed not only the mine but also the theater and the hospital. Mine #2 operated until March 31, 1927, when the Sunday Creek Coal Company decided to abandon the mine rather than modernize it. One miner commented that his tools and equipment are still presumably in the mine from the last day of work.
After that San Toy tried to hang on, turning to moonshine for a while, but it was a lost cause. The mine was what had kept things going.

Re: San Toy, Ohio

I've been through that area fourwheeling and have a few friends in Perry County, it's still a rough place.

When we had the bad ice storm in 04/05 some places down there was without power for over 6 weeks...
