USA - West Virginia - Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine

New River Park, Beckley, West Virginia
Visitors to this turn of the century working mine ride coal cars through 1,500 feet of underground passageways. Veteran miners, acting as guides, describe low seam coal mining from its early manual operations to modern mechanized ones. Bring a wrap; the temperature is a constant 58º. Operated by the city of Beckley.
