Anthracite Heritage Museum and Coal Mine Tour

1280337_16071806Visitors experience the lives of proud people who endured harsh working conditions, yet carved out communities filled with tradition. People are welcomed into the families’ homes and neighborhoods, with a moment of reflection in the kitchen, a visit to the pub, or a seat in a local church.

Then descend slowly into the earth in a mine car, as we enter old Slope #190. Watch the sky slowly disappear. Soon you’ll reach “the foot”. Explore 300 feet beneath the earth through an anthracite coal mine, originally opened in 1860. Accompany a miner in the winding underground gangways and rock tunnels, past three different veins of hard coal, past the mule boy and the nipper, past the monkey vein and dead chute. Listen as he explains the fascinating methods used, and the heroic efforts involved, in deep mining’s history.

NEPA Social Event members will meet at the ticket booth. The temperature in the mine is 53 degrees year round so a light jacket is recommended. The walking portion of the tour is about a half mile, so comfortable shoes are needed.

Yoga Class

580928_32800282Would you like to feel more peace in your life? Come out and enjoy a gentle yoga class led by Joanne Chmiola. This class is held at a slow pace focusing on stretching all areas of the body, while releasing stress and tension from your joints and muscles.

Wear comfortable/nonrestrictive clothes. Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach, so eating lightly, about two hours prior is recommended. Bottled water, mats, and props will be supplied at the studio, or you can bring your own if you prefer. Most importantly…bring your smile and positive vibes!
