  • Great visit to the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine! Everyone was so nice & helpful at the coal mine camp. Don Barrett was a fantastic guide! He took us thru the mine explaining the day of a miner to us...showing us mining equipment that was used then & now. As a former miner, he was very knowledgeable about the process and shared personal stories which made it a more meaningful experience! So glad we added this stop to our road trip!!
  • Very interesting and informative. What the miners had to endure to make a living.. Unbelievable. I now know what the song meant "owe my soul to the company store". Going into a coal mine was quite the experience. People flip a switch to get electric, with no thought of how they get it. I look at it all differently now. Thanks for a better knowledge of it all.
