Summersville’s Mozelle Brown, 93, was only 21 years old when she packed her bags and left Nicholas County aboard a bus to Akron, Ohio, to work as a riveter. She holds the sheet metal manual she was given during riveter training. The iconic Norman Rockwell “Rosie the Riveter” illustration ran on the cover of Saturday Evening Post in May 1943.
