Black and white miners worked side by side digging coal in the Monroe County hills- black and white clerks manned the company store- black and white students shared classrooms.

Buxton flourished for two decades, but by the 1920s the coal mines had played out and residents moved on. Though the town has long been abandoned, the memories, heritage, and ideals of Buxton live on. BUXTON BRANCHES includes the most complete set of birth records in existence for the town. It is a companion book to BUXTON ROOTS, which includes marriage, death, cemetery and census records.
