  • A nice place to visit to see our Coal Mining heritage in NE PA. Rebuilt but back to original scenery Coal Breaker. Watch the movie The Molly McQuires with Sean Connery and it was filmed there. 
  • Eckley Miner's Village was an unplanned stop while we were in PA for a couple of weeks. The sign on one of the highways caught my attention (Brown State Sign) so I looked it up on the internet that ni...  more »

  • It is a bit spooky walking thru this historic village which was the set for the film "The Molly Maguires"! Very nice. clean, and picturesque..would not want to be here on Halloween though!
  • "Hard coal , hard core!" Nice place to visit and learn about how "hard coal" shaped the region. Try to go on one of the themed weekends for a better experience . Museum and gift shop are nice. I would not have wanted to live in that point of history.
  • Took my in-laws from out of state to The Village tour. It was one of the worst tours I have been on. The guide talked about his family and how he mowed the lawn from sun up to sun down when he was a kid. This was not the kind of information we had hoped to learn. The guide could not answer a question someone asked but it was information my mother in law just read at the site, she answered the question. Bottom line is the guides (at least ours) need some training. This place could be so much better with educated guides.
  • Lots of fun looking at buildings used and made for the 1970 movie mollie maguires,with sean connery and richard harris.
  • I would have rated higher, but our tour guide talked away from us and started the building lectures before everyone was in the building. I do recommend this visit to all to get a glimpse of a portion of PA history. See the movie The Molly McGuires before visiting.
