A Fun Fact About
Fairmont, WV

We are a city with roots in the Appalachian coal mines. Our history has given Fairmont, and the world, Father's Day. The first service was held in our city to honor the fathers lost in the 1907 Monongah mining disaster. Also from the mines came the pepperoni roll - a savory, handheld, pepperoni-stuffed baked roll sent deep underground as lunch for the miners.
