Facility:Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour
Description:Descend slowly into the earth in a mine car as you enter the old Slope #190. Watch the sky slowly disappear. Soon you've reached the foot . Then explore 300 feet beneath the earth through an anthracite coal mine originally opened in 1860. Accompany a miner in the winding underground gangways and rock tunnel past three different veins of hard coal, past the mule boy and the nipper, past the monkey vein and the dead chute. Listen as he explains the fascinating methods used, and the heroic efforts involved, in deep mining's history
