  1. I’d like to correct my previous statement about Dr. & Mrs. Dove. They did not have children living with them at the time that my grandparents lived there with their 3 children. My father and his siblings were the only children living in the Iaeger Bank Building converted apartments. What an interesting fun childhood they had!

  2. I just came across this post while looking at old pictures of Welch, WV. Thank you for this trip down memory lane.

    I graduated from Iaeger High School in 1969. I recognize all those pictures; auditorium, football field, the Iaeger Cubs mascot, etc. Both Welch and Iaeger were (relatively speaking) bustling places in the 1960’s. I went to college and my family moved away. The next and last time I was there was 2001/2002, when I went to a Iaeger High School reunion. By that time, Welch was a ghost town, but to my surprise, Iaeger was still a vibrant place. It is sad but not surprising that eventually the decline that father time has caused that area eventually caught up to Iaeger.
