PRINCETON, West Virginia — Mercer County officials are considering two sites for a Hatfield McCoy Trails visitors center.

A selection committee is scheduled to meet Thursday to choose an engineering firm to design a trailhead. The trailhead will serve as a visitors center.

Committee chairman Gene Buckner tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph (http://bit.ly/1KvRbVm ) that the location has been narrowed to Coaldale Mountain near Bramwell and River Road near Montcalm.

Buckner says the committee could choose the location at Thursday's meeting.

Hatfield McCoy Trails executive director Jeff Lusk says the project's estimated cost is about $500,000. Trail officials hope to begin construction in the spring of 2016.
