Fall 2017 WVIA Family Event

deb_coalmine.jpg

WVIA Family Event at Lackawanna Coal Mine & Anthracite Heritage Museum

Saturday, November 4th & 11th and Sunday, November 5th & 12th from 10am - 2pm

Present WVIA Member Card or Valid ID for Free Admissions.

Descend slowly into the earth in a Mine Car as you enter the Lackawanna County Coal Mine where the temperature is a constant 53 degrees year round. There are no remaining active deep mines in the area, so you are literally “going down in history”. The Anthracite Heritage Museum tells the story of the people who came from Europe to work in the Anthracite Mining and Textiles Industries.
