I was here when I was 5 years old with my family...They had push mine cars that worked on tracks! The tracks went deep in to the hill but it was fenced off...Perhaps we could go in once we sign the waivers.. Anyone want to send a letter to them?

Coal Mine
Throughout southeastern Ohio, coal lies under the sandstone and shale hillsides. This bank-type coal mine which reopened in 1974, was once a small family mine providing the much needed fuel to heat the homes on the farm.
