Coal Is Why They Came
Perched atop a mountain ridge at the center of one of the planet’s largest concentrations of disturbed terrain, Eckley Miners’ Village is a world within a world. Visit our authentic 19th-century company mining town, and experience the lives of the working-class families who once fueled America.
Our museum is currently open Thursdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.!
Guided tours are suspended and historic buildings are closed for the winter and will reopen in Spring 2022.
The village is free to walk or drive through at any time.
Our annual summer festival returns on June 18th & 19th! Eckley is partnering with the Walk In Art Center to showcase the folk arts, music, and food of Pennsylvania’s Coal Region.
The Eckley Oral History Project
By transcribing oral histories gathered from Eckley residents in the 1970s, you can help us preserve the social fabric of this historic mining community.
Eckley Miners’ Village is administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
