Wood Products Industrial Park
James H. (“Buck”) Harless Wood Products Industrial Park
The James H. (“Buck”) Harless Wood Products Industrial Park is located on a reclaimed mine site on 22 Mine Road near Holden, West Virginia. In late 1999, the Mingo County Redevelopment Authority began transforming this site into Mingo County’s first industrial park. The transformation wasn’t easy, as it would require the development of public/private partnerships, the implementation of innovative financing techniques, and the remediation of a reclaimed surface mine site into a 650 acre development site with access and infrastructure. It was this development which triggered the West Virginia Legislature’s adoption of land use master planning for all of the state’s coal producing counties. Winner of the EPA’s prestigious Brownfields Award in 2004, the Wood Products Industrial Park is now home to four successful businesses, with capital investments exceeding $50 million, and approximately 300 jobs.
