Eckley Miners’ Village preserves and interprets the heritage of Pennsylvania’s anthracite Coal Region, a 484-square-mile tract of ridges and valleys that fueled America’s Industrial Revolution. Founded in 1854 and continuously occupied for more than 150 years, Eckley is North America’s most complete nineteenth-century company town and the only historical site and museum dedicated to the daily lives of immigrant miners, their families, and their descendants.
With more than 100 historic miners’ homes, owners’ mansions, churches, outhouses, cow sheds, goat barns, and more, Eckley is an immersive experience like no other.
Located at the heart of one of the largest concentrations of disturbed terrain in the world, Eckley is an island surrounded by open strip mines, culm banks, and other reminders of the region’s industrial past.
From ethnic celebrations to haunted Halloween tours, Eckley brings the rich history of Pennsylvania’s Coal Region to life.
