The Exhibition Coal Mine is the largest and most popular coal heritage destination in the region. Traveling 1500 feet beneath the hillsides of New River Park, visitors will be carried along the track in authentic "man cars" to actual old working areas of the coal mine. Stops throughout the tour explore the history of low-seam coal mining from the hand-loading days into the era of modern mechanization. You can also tour the Coal Company House, Superintendent's Home, Pemberton Coal Camp Church, and the Helen Coal Camp School.
