No. 9 Mine & Museum
Tour a real coal mine dating back to 1855! Hop in a mine car and take the tracks over 1,600 feet into the mountain.Once inside, embark on a 600-foot, guided walking tour. Examine the original mine shaft, walk the “mule-way," and see a miner’s hospital cut into solid rock. Outside is the museum, housed in the No.9 Mine’s original “wash shanty” constructed before the First World War. The museum houses the largest collection of mining artifacts in the area, as well as a gift shop. Picnic facilities are available for large groups. The No. 9 Mine museum and gift shop are open year round.
