Moundsville is the biography of a classic town, from the Native American burial mound it’s named after, through the rise and fall of industry, to the age of Wal-Mart and shale gas, and a new generation figuring it all out. Told through the voices of residents, the story covers an arc that includes Moundsville’s Native American origins, white settlement, Marx toy plant (it made Rock’em Sock’em robots), legendary prison, first black mayor, post-industrial decline, and current small businesses. The constant is the mound, a Greek chorus reciting time’s insistence on change. By reckoning with deeper truths about the heartland and its economy, without nationalist nostalgia, liberal condescension, or talking about Trump, “Moundsville” plants seeds for better conversations about America’s future.
