Original First Nat’l
Was In Building
Stage During 1902
“Sidewalk superintendents” had
a field day when the First National
Bank of Oakland began to take
shape in 1902—just as they have
had more than 60 years later, while
the bank’s new building on Second
street has been under construction.
This early view, taken from Sec
ond street looking up Alder, shows
some of the spectators and work
ers on the scene as foundation work
was being done.
The area must have been a busy |
one, judging by the amount of
stone, lumber and building sup

Cn Power Station
lTold to Rotarians ?

’ Some detrils of the construction |
of a mine-mouth power station
?noar Mt. Storm, W. Va., were mxt-i
lined at talk delivered before lhe§
fil{otm‘_\' ciub of Oakland last Fri-|
| day cvening,
' The talk was schcduled to have

i\\‘ém is project manager for con-|

for the George F. Hazelwood com-|
lpun_\'. but he was called to Lus:
Angeles, Cal.. en busincss and hisi
talk was given by his wife. The lu‘.ki
was acccmpanied by a number of
slides showing the progress of con
The mine-mouth power station is
‘b(‘ing built by the Virginia Elec
tric and Power company. Mine
mouth literally means that this is
being built where the coal is,
rather than transporting the coal.
Recent technical advances have
made it practical fo transmit power
through 500,000 vo!t transmission
systems, making it possible to ef
|foct a savings in gencration of
power through cutting coal trans
portation costs.
The power station presently being
built will have two 500,000 kilowatt
units, the first to be placed in
service in mid-1965, the second unit
a year later.
Power is to be transmitted over
a 350-mile locp system extending
from Mt. Storm to Waynesboro to
Richmond, Va.. to Washington, D.
C., and back to Mt. Storm.
It has been estimated that dur-i
ing the first ten years the plant is
in operation 2.8 million tons of
coal will be consumed per year.
The plant will have a permanent
staff of approximately 75 men with
an average annual payroll of about
The dam will impound the water |
which will provide steam and the
cooling water for operation of the
steam gencrators. The project be
gan in February of 1962. The first
step was to build roads rrom cxist-i
ing highways to the site, through|
[ virgin timber. ,‘I
In the construction of the dam!
it was necessary to clear the land
and either destroy or bury all
material that would fioat. The river
]hud to be contained. To do this
Iu 9 diameter concrete pipe was
| cast. It carried the river through
| the entire peried of consiruction.
1 The state of West Virginia con
structed a new asphait bighway
!fmm Bismarck to the dam and at
the end of December the first four
mile stretch of road will be up
for bids for the highway that wiil
| lead irom the dam to Davis, W.
Va. |
All materials for the dam came.
from the immediate area. After
‘Hle dam was completed the nine
|fu()t diversion conduit was capped
with a concrete gate weighing somol
40 tons in October of this year. A
conereie plug in the pipe 120 feet
long is calculated to insure thai‘
the conduit ncver will be a source
of leakage. |
The watcr had risen about 35|
feet and eventually will go over |
the spillway under the highway |
bridge. |
The lake is to have a surface area
of approximately 1,200 acres, cum-l
pared to 4,800 for Deep Creck. The |
lake is expected to be filled in the
next year. Average elevation of the
lake will be 3,243 feet above sea
It is expected that the area will
be developed for recreational pur
poses much like Decp Creek. With
