“world’s oldest continuously operated anthracite coal mine”
Opened in 1855, No. 9 Coal Mine, located in Lansford, Pennsylvania is the world's oldest continuously operated anthracite coal mine! Closed in 1972, the mine was re-opened as a heritage tourism attraction in 2002. Today visitors ride safely by train 1600 feet into the mountainside, to see and experience first hand what it was like for our fathers and grandfathers to work underground over the past 200 years.
So much fun! Everyone who works here REALLY cares about the mine and will do absolutely anything to help you find out more. Going into the mine is awesome too. Don't pass it up!!!
