Richardson invited the television show’s archaeological crews to dig at the site of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. A dig that resulted in everything from the families’ wash basins to bullets believed to have been fired the morning of the legendary New Year’s battle in 1888.
As a professor with WVU Extension Service, Richardson works to build collaborations on local, state, and national levels to provide business opportunities to Mingo County and beyond.
