A once coal booming town, Glen Alum is now survived by 3 remaining families. Glen Alum is an unincorporated community in Mingo County, West Virginia. The community derives its name from the local Glen Alum Coal Company and is now visited by trail riders, locals, and seeking coal owners hoping for that last boom.
