    1. Very interesting! Was talking to my oldest living cousin recently. Found out my father had lived in Nigger Head. Would be interested to hear more. Is there a town called Nigger Head? Thanks.

    2. No town called Nigger Head at this site. St. Charles, Stone Creek, and Pennington Gap are the only close communities.

    3. My Mother was born and raised in Woodway. A stones throw from Pennington Gap. My Grandfather operated a tram in the mines for years. He was only 12 years old when he started working in those mines. She told my sister and I everyone used to call it Nigger Head Rock. She remembers when they officially changed the name to the Great Stone Face. We took her to her 50th class reunion several years back. Hadn't been there since I was a child. It was during the Fall season and I fell in love with my Mothers home state. Absolutely breath taking!

  9. There was a road house near there, called Nigger Head Club. My father, who waa raised in the area, said that the club was a school bus stop, and that the proprietors would sell "near beer" to kids who'd come in after the bus dropped them off! This wouldve been in tge early 1940s. I have a newspaper clipping about a shooting that occured there, involving some cousins of my father...the headline read "Tenn. Woman Critically Wounded by Pistol Shot Near Nigger Head Sat." Ill post it if anyone else want to see it.

  13. Well its named The Great Stone Face so get over your ignorant need to continue using the racially offensive name. You should visit Crackerville. It's two clicks North of Redneck Lake and down the hill from the Incest woods.

  14. Negro Head would not be offensive and actually it would be correct. Some think that Negro is Offensive but there is no basis for that except ignorance of the English Language.

    1. It takes a special amount of arrogance to ever even BEGIN to try to decide what other people feel is offensive. How about calling it Cauc-head (cockhead) rock and see how your kind likes it?

      Delete
    2. Cockhead rock doesn't offend me at all. Try again
