Downtown Coeburn

The Town of Coeburn is nestled in the mountains of Southwest Virginia and is situated in the southeastern portion of Wise County, just off Route 58. Originally, the town was named Guest Station after Christopher Gist. When the town was incorporated in 1894, the name was changed to Coeburn in honor of W. W. Coe, Chief Engineer of the N&W Railroad, and Judge W. E. Burns.

The home of Jim & Jesse and Ralph Stanley II, Coeburn is also widely known today for its beautiful downtown, complete with antique lamps, brick sidewalks, and pedestrian bridges. The town spans 1.9 square miles and is home to approximately 2,000 people. We are conveniently located within a 10 minute drive of lodging, restaurants and shopping.
