WAYLAND, KENTUCKY


The former miners' housing in Wayland is similar to the homes that Elkhorn Coal Corporation built down the creek at Estill. Nearly one hundred years after the houses were constructed they continue to be in sturdy condition. However, after many alterations, such as carports, porches, and siding that people have made to the homes, they bear little resemblance to their coal camp origins. The Wayland mines closed in 1954.
