Changing Times - Welch, WV - 2005

 


 

There have been several changes in the Welch area in the past few years. Many of the old familiar scenes we remember from our childhood days have changed. Some old buildings have been demolished due to past flooding and other problems and some have been replaced.

Below are a few photos of the most current changes for the folks who haven't been here in a while.
