  • Ignored this place so many times when we passed by, as we only saw the remains of the buildings from the highway. Finally visited this site, and found it's worth to spend an hour or so for exploring the history of the site.
  • A pleasant and informative little historical diversion off the highway. Ruins of the old Collieries, and lots of signage to read. I felt as if I knew the world a tiny bit better afterwards.
  • Went and followed the signs to the ladies washroom. It was nice grounds. Not much except for all the cement work of the buildings left. As I was lab ing a couple came to have their wedding pictures taken there. Unique idea.
  • Open to public with trails and informative signage. The were two staff available to answer any questions. Teaches you about the coal processing operation and some local history. There are no personal artifacts to see, just what remains of the structures.
  • Great scenery, however I was hoping for a public washroom.
