YOUR Historic municipal PARK

Rich History Meets Modern Innovation

The Black Knight Municipal Park in Beckley was organized in 1928–29 when Col. Ernest Chilson, general manager and vice president of Raleigh Coal & Coke, offered more than 60 acres of company property for a golf course and clubhouse. The club’s name came from the ‘‘Black Knight’’ trademark of the coal company. Raleigh Coal & Coke owned the club, and membership was limited to those prominent in coal and related industries. The house, designed by Chilson, was a three-story white cinder block building with Art Deco features. The nine-hole golf course was designed by noted golf architect Fred Findlay. Governor Conley attended the club’s grand opening, May 31, 1929.
