“Embreeville” is one of nine presentations in the Appalachian Outreach Program, developed by the Archives of Appalachia in 1979-1980. The presentation traces the economic and social history of this small mountain community from its early settlement, through "boom and bust" periods of iron, lead, zinc, and manganese mining, up through the controversy surrounding the Bumpass Cove Landfill. The program uses narration and oral interviews combined with historic and more recent photographs which focus on the background of a social issue of widespread concern.
