Memorial to Coal Miners

Seen from 901E, a nice roadside tribute to local anthracite miners features a couple of large chunks of coal, a Minersville sign, a miner statue, and a coal car emerging from a simulated mine.

[Donna Austin, 12/26/2022]

The statue is a diminutive version of a more elaborate coal miner statue about a mile south in Pottsville.
