Our team has pulled together to transform this location into a community hub for artisans and creative businesses. West Edge Factory by Coalfield Development has 14,000 sq. ft. of community meeting space, a theater, a solar installation learning center and practice roof, an agricultural aggregation and distribution facility, and ample tenant space available.

Visit the place where cool stuff happens every day!

Things have been made in the 96,000 square feet of West Edge for over 100 years and Coalfield Development is continuing that tradition. Our wood shop and apparel print shop produce goods in ways the original builders wouldn’t have imagined, but they would easily recognize the work taking place in our 2 high-tunnel greenhouses. Your tour will include seeing the plans for the long anticipated Black Box Theater, the Artist Studios, and the event-ready venue space. Coalfield is honored to share with you our commitment to the tradition of “making” along with the creativity and ingenuity of the people of Appalachia.
