About Us

Mission Statement: 

To educate and preserve the Hatfield-McCoy family history of the famous blood feud while promoting peace and showing the world it is possible to love beyond our differences.

Vision:

The Hatfield-McCoy name is a very well-known and trusted name in the Appalachia Mountains due to the famous history. We will capitalize on this foundation to help grow the struggling local economies where the family feuds took place by creating jobs and growing the tourism revenue in the areas.

Our goal is to utilize the foundation to purchase key Hatfield McCoy Family sites and properties and get them registered as protected historic landmarks and keep them maintained for years to come.  Through the years these historic sites have not been kept by the families (inherited through marriages), nor are they protected, or even maintained.  

We will market the Hatfield-McCoy Family Foundation and its properties, leadership, and products to the local community, businesses, business leaders, and across the country as well as focus on social media marketing to campaign our vision and mission.

We do this while promoting and preserving the family history conveying our message of Peace, Love, Diversity, Inclusion, Acceptance, and Togetherness.

About us:

The Hatfield McCoy Foundation is a 501c3 that was founded to create, promote, and preserve The Hatfield & McCoy Families’ History. While promoting the family history conveying our message of Peace, Love, Diversity, Inclusion, Acceptance, and Togetherness, and assist in aiding the local economies of the Appalachia Mountains. 

Due to the economic shift of the natural resources, and coal companies closing because of the nation’s focus on clean energy, there is a greater need for tourist attractions to help the local economies. 

Utilizing the Hatfield & McCoy family history will bring additional tourism and tax revenue to the Appalachia Mountains while promoting and preserving our family history.

The Hatfield McCoy name is already a trusted and famous name due to our historic background of the blood feud between the families.  This Foundation will become the official Hatfield McCoy entity for both families showcasing the history. 

It will be able to expand into various aspects of tourism destinations, products, appearances, and activities in the local community and around the country.

The foundation will be dedicated to promoting peace and showing the world it is possible to love beyond our differences.
