The Meadow River Lumber Company operated at this location in Rainelle, WV from the early 1900s until the mid 1970s and was the world’s largest hardwood lumber mill.
Thomas and John Raines of Ironton, Ohio formed the Meadow River Lumber to process timber from the vast stands of virgin forest in the area. The Raines Brothers constructed a spur rail line, the Meadow River Railroad, to transport timber to the sawmill at Rainelle on the Meadow River.
Most of Rainelle was industry and residences related to the lumber company. The company houses provided some of the better living conditions in the area. It was reported that typical houses had modern plumbing (for the time), electricity, a small yard and garden space.
The original sawmill burnt in 1924 but was soon replaced with the mill that stood until the 1970s when the operation was sold to Georgia Pacific. Nearly all of the buildings from the sawmill and related industry have been razed. The yards and property of the sawmill are now home to shopping and fast food businesses.
