Holiday events planned at No. 9 Coal Mine

Memorial Day weekend is a special time at the No. 9 Coal Mine and Museum in Lansford. Although the mine and museum will be open for tours every day, this Sunday will feature other special activities to commemorate the holiday weekend.

The grounds will be filled with the smells of homemade ethnic foods coming from the picnic pavilion, the sound of music in the field, the sights of beautiful antique and classic cars gathered on the grounds, and the feel of cool air coming from the 163-year-old No. 9 Coal Mine as visitors prepare to board the mine train for the one-hour underground tour of the world’s oldest deep mine followed by a trip through the mining museum on the surface.

The annual Memorial Day weekend event is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday and is open to the public. Admission to the grounds and parking are free. A nominal fee is charged for the mine tours, museum will be free. All other activities are free.

The Anthracite Region Chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America will present an antique and classic car show on the grounds. Anyone wishing to display their automobile can still register when they arrive. Music will be provided by DJ Shawn Frederickson.

A variety of homemade ethnic foods will be available for sale at the picnic pavilion.
