Collection Tending the Commons: Folklife and Landscape in Southern West Virginia

Sycamore Creek

The maps for this site are based on U.S.G.S. topographic quads and were notated in field interviews conducted between 1994 and 1999. Dave Bailey, Woody Boggs, Ben Burnside, Ed Cantley, Tony Dickens, Paul Fitzwater, Ivan Jarrell, Ricky Meadows, Howard Miller, Elbert Pettry, Wesley Scarbrough, and Rocky Turner helped fill out the quads with local names, and their accounts of places and origins of names may be heard by clicking on a number of the creeks with side hollows. Ben Burnside, Woody Boggs, and Ricky Meadows provided supplementary sketches as well. Tom Suzuki transformed the sketches and the annotated quads into these maps, which were modified (10/2000) for navigational purposes.
