Barthell Coal Camp

(#425) from Kentucky Life Program 425 (1997)

A tour of the Barthell coal camp in McCreary County. Nearly abandoned in the 1950s after its mine shut down, Barthell was restored by long-time residents Harold and Marilyn Koger, who turned it into a faithful re-creation of the “company towns” of a bygone era in tribute to the miners who had lived and worked there.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
