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.

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.
