Lignite is a ghost town in Botetourt County, Virginia, United States. A former lignite coal mining town, it consisted of a company store, churches, and a main street theater. It was abandoned in 1890 after ore demands dropped. It has very few remains and is now a part of the Jefferson National Forest.
