America’s Most Famous Feud
The families of the feud leaders were of strong stock and from them have come leaders of many professions – business, education, medicine, governors, senators, lawyers etc. The clans, both Hatfield and McCoy, were honest, hard-working and proud. They came into the wilderness of Kentucky and Virginia (now West Virginia) and patented thousands of acres of land.

The McCoys generally hail from the Kentucky side of the Tug River and the Hatfields from the West Virginia side. However, even during the famous feud, both families shared space on either side of the Tug.

Often many would call their kin who would marry into the other family “traitors” or “turncoats”. Once a member of the McCoy family married into the Hatfield family, they were said to be “Hatfield” and no longer “McCoy”. Clan pride and family loyalty was strong, no doubt left over from their days in the homelands of Ireland and Scotland.

  1. I’m a Geographer at the University of Macerata (Italy) writing a paper on the Hatfield and McCoy feud inducted tourism. It will be published on a scholars’ review. Could you please let me know how many visitors do you have, each year in your tours? Average per month? Do you know how many people use the App and the self tour CD

  2. There are no guided tours for groups less than 12-15. If you have a group of 12-15 people, Dreamz Stables does guided tours of the Pikeville City Hatfield McCoy Feud Sites only. All feud sites featured on the Hatfield McCoy driving tour are open to the public during daylight hours. We can help you plan your tour, and show you how our step-by-step guide works. Thank you.
