A reflection of Status Constructed in 1906 in Skelton, WV, the "super's home" was just that, a three story structure for the mine superintendent to make his home. However, all indications are that Samuel Dixon the mine owner, had it built more as a small mansion, resembling those from the countryside of England where he was born. In fact he named the mining town after this birthplace Skelton, England. The first floor consists of a formal living room, dining room, kitchen and super's office. The second floor houses the master bedroom and nursery. Also on the second floor is a reproduction of the company's doctors office, barbershop and company store post office. Compare this house with the miner's house and shanty. Picture caption: The superintendent's house of the Cranbury Fuel Company at Skelton.
