The coal miner statue is a tribute to miners across the nation. Everything on the statue means something. He's missing his right index finger in honor of all miners injured in the mines. His check tag is 382 for the number of miners killed in Guernesy County over a 60 year span. The statue stands at the Byesville Scenic Railroad Station. There is also a coal mining museum there, but it was closed when we visited. [Norm Gonder, 02/02/2013]
