Coal Culture Projects

6 Mile Run

This website was created to identify images and resources that document the lives of western Pennsylvania coal miners and their families from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Special thanks goes to Eileen Mountjoy for her thorough essays on Pennsylvania Coal Culture, processing MG 94: The Rochester & Pittsburgh Coal Company Media Collection, and her book Rochester & Pittsburgh Coal Company: the first one hundred years.
