Covington Improvement Company Prospectus (2011 words)
W.A. Covington is in the centre of the richest and most extensive deposits of high grade iron-ore in the United States, and is nearer the coal and coke fields of West Virginia than any other town in the iron belt of the Virginias.
Now, Covington is, in the first place, located nearer the new River coal-fields than any other town of the iron district on the Chesapeake and Ohio railway; hence an advantage in freight on coke.
The iron produced from the Covington ores is well known from the Atlantic to the Rocky mountains as being strictly neutral, and as being particularly adapted to machine casting, ordnance castings, and stove and agricultural castings.
