Riding our Dual Sport Bikes: Update coming soon!
Hatfield-McCoy Feud Site Tours: 304-426-4700
The 3 hour tour is a minimum of $130.00 and minimum of 5 bikes. This tour visits virtually all the sites where the (ACTUAL FEUDING TOOK PLACE) we stop a minimum of 3 times and includes visiting The Paw Paw tree incident where the 3 McCoy Boys were murdered, site of the hog trial, stabbing of Ellison Hatfield by the McCoy Boys, where Roseanna and Johnse slipped off together, house location of Randolf McCoy where his house was burned and his 2 children killed and wife beaten up, the burial area of the 3 McCoy boys, the cave site area where Asa Harmon McCoy was killed, Nancy and Mary and Jeff McCoy incidents and Johnse and Cap Hatfield incidents, the battle of grapevine along with the story and involvement of Perry Cline and Jim Vance.
This tour does not include visiting any grave sites. It includes visiting the actual feuding site areas. For an additional $50.00 I will lead an additional 30 miles to visit Devil Anses grave site which has a life size statue of him and also passes by the Ellison Hatfield cemetery . That additional trip takes app.1-1.5 hours. We could also travel to Pikeville Ky. and visit the Hanging site of Ellison "Cotton Top" Mounts and visit the cemetery where Randolf McCoy and his wife and daughter Roseanna is buried which would take an additional 3 hours which would be an addition of cost of $100.00. Total cost for all 3 which would be be a full day trip and total would be $280.00
The reason the first trip/3 hour trip excludes visiting cemeteries is because most people spend a lot of time on the grave sites reading tomb stones and time passes quickly plus after 3 hours most people are tired. It is to be understood that we cannot stop at all locations due to the fact that some sites are on private property. It is also to be understood that lots of the sites have no markers or any historical structures. The all day trip will include various stops including a stop for lunch which is an additional cost and choice of restaurant to be decided by you. App. 4 miles of the 3 hour section of the tour is optional for your crew which includes a dirt/gravel road that goes to the top of a mountain that overlooks several of miles and lots of the feuding territory area and mountain top removal can also be viewed from a distance. I also narrate during the tour and point out some other historical areas as well.
Located here in downtown is also the site of the Matewan Massacre and you can visit the spot which has a button on the wall that tells the story of the massacre. I have had no complaints of the tour thus far with the exception that most people did not realize that the incidents were as spread out as they are. I think most people thought all incidents happened within a couple miles. And some folks expected to see ruins and more markers but overall all were very excited about the tour.
Thanks Donald McCoy
