LOCAL MINING Display

 

Harrison County was a top coal producing county in Ohio.  The general of mining in this county and Eastern Ohio is covered from Ida Mae Stull, who was nationally recognized as the country's first woman coal miner, to the decline of the industry during the 1980s. Items from local mines are also on display.  Other displays include several watch fobs, popular then and now, representing various coal equipment companies.  The old "company store" is also featured with examples of merchandise and "scrip", both paper and metal.
