This smoke stack is the remains of the Buffington Mill, located on what is now 101 Buffington St., Guyandotte, according to Larry L. Legge. It was demolished when an apartment complex was built there several decades ago. It was constructed in 1856 and burned by Union forces on Nov. 11, 1861. A co-owner of the mill was Thomas Jefferson Jenkins of Greenbottom, a brother of Albert Gallatin Jenkins. Huntington resident Joe Geiger Jr. in his book "Civil War in Cabell County, West Virginia 1861-1865," describes the mill as being the largest mill on the Ohio River between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. He writes "Wheat was unloaded from steamboats and converted to flour. The flour was then placed in barrels and usually shipped south. The mill was a three-story building with an overhead runway which ran over Front Street and down to the Ohio River."
