Harrop Furniture (Little Cities of Black Diamonds office)- As you continue along W. Main Street and make your way further along the street, you will come to an orange wooden framed building. The building originally belonged to the Harrop family. One of Shawnee’s most prominent residents, Walter Harrop lived in the blue house (Buckeye Trail Office), next door. At one point looking at the right side of the building, closest to the Buckeye Trail Office, the room was used as a furniture and casket making space as it served as a funeral home. To the left of the space, where the archive is currently, was the old village restaurant. The building belongs to the Buckeye Trail Association, which operates next door. Currently, the Little Cities of Black Diamonds Council (LCBD) office is based out of the space. LCBD is a historical organization that is dedicated to promoting and sharing labor and cultural history of the LCBD microregion. The LCBD microregion refers to the 60 coal mining towns and camps or so, that sprung up throughout the Hocking Valley Coal Boom throughout the Monday and Sunday Creek watersheds.
