A special Hatfield McCoy church service is planned at the McCoy Well, Sunday, September 25, 2016. Lead by Billy Hatfield, direct descendant of Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield, the service will begin at 10:00 a.m., and will conclude with the unveiling of new signs to be placed along the Randolph McCoy trail. This event will also feature live entertainment by the Hatfield McCoy Heritage Council, and Paintsville Kentucky’s own Marlana Vanhoose.

“Part of what will make this service so special to me is that the Hatfields and McCoys are coming together on the property where the Hatfields attacked and burned down the McCoy’s cabin so many years ago,” said Tony K. Tackett, Pike County Tourism CVB Executive Director. “Lives were lost, and terrible history was made there on that cold New Years Eve. Now, we have the Hatfields and McCoys coming together in peace to honor the past. It will be a something to remember.”

The Randolph McCoy Trail is a historic trail that leads visitors through the feud sites of the Hatfields and McCoys. The trail stretches through KY-319, and onto KY-1056, in a region known as Hardy, and Blackberry, Kentucky. Along this trail are many feud related sites, such as the Randolph McCoy property and well, as well as the Hog Trail Cabin, the Hatfield Washstand, the Pawpaw Trees site, and many more. This trail leads into historic Matewan, WV, where visitors can enjoy a Train Depot museum, as well as the West Virginia Mine Wars Museum.

The Hatfield McCoy Heritage Days celebration begins Friday, September 23, and continues through the Sunday, September 25. A wide variety of events are planned, such as a Ruff, Tuff, Cuss race weekend, live music Friday Night at the Billy Johnson Expo Stage in Downtown Pikeville, with Saturday featuring a Hatfield McCoy Farmer’s Market event and Drag Racing that evening.
