You can list cultural capital ie the city you consider to be most important in Appallachian culture as well as the one you think would or should be the political capital of Appalachia if it were to ever become a functioning political entity.

I heard Pittsburgh referred to as the capital of Appalachia, but to me it seems to be more of an anomaly for the region. So I'd probably say Charleston, WV.

Knoxville in the south and Pittsburg in the north. The northern and southern sections of appalachia are different so its hard to pick one.

I'd maybe think Wheeling, West Virginia or Knoxville, Tennessee. Wheeling just because of historical significance or because I just like the name and wanted to be different.
