DANTE LIVES ON CELEBRATES 10 YEARS
IN 2013 Celebrate with us at the 2013 REUNION
Dante residents created Dante Lives On, Inc. in October of 2003 to revitalize our community. Nestled in the mountains of southwest Virginia, Dante was once the headquarters of the Clinchfield Coal Corporation but has been in a long economic decline since the last coal mine shut down in 1959. Determined to see our community survive and move forward, our residents are preserving, restoring, and promoting their coal mining and railroading history. You will find a wealth of information here, old and new, about Dante, it's residents, culture and heritage. Come on in and stay a while!
This is how Dante looked during the 1940s.
