Also known as the "Keeney Brothers," Keeneys Rapids is a collective name for three rapids on the Lower New River Gorge whitewater rafting segment near the mouth of Keeneys Creek -- Upper Keeneys Rapids, Middle Keeneys Rapids, and Lower Keeneys Rapids. The ruins of the ghost town of Keeneys Creek are located around the mouth of the creek on river-right.

The map at left shows the location of mining communities at South Nuttall, Keeneys Creek, Nuttallburg, and Kaymoor as they appeared in 1913. Little is left of these mining communities today.
