Descend slowly 300 feet down into the earth in a mine car. Discover the methods used in deep mining’s history. Accompany a miner in the winding underground gangways and rock tunnel past three different veins of hard coal, past the mule boy and the nipper, past the monkey vein and the dead chute. The descent down the slope takes 3-4 minutes. The walking portion of the tour is approximately a 1/2 mile and lasts one hour. This is an amazing experience for all ages. On the tour, you learn about who mined coal and how. It combines local history, industrial history, regional history and national history to put a fascinating perspective on a small part of American history.
