Search Beckley West Virginia

1500 feet of underground passages have restored the mine operated by the Phillips Family in the late 1800's in what is now a part of New River Park in Beckley. Visitors ride a "man trip" car guided through the mine by veteran miners for an authentic view of low seam coal mining from its earliest manual stages to modern mechanized operation. Includes: Coal House, a three room house dating back from 1925 through the 1940's; Superintendent House, a three story structure constructed for the mine superintendent. Listed on the National Register of Historical Sites.
