This WAS a great small local museum with company store and mining memorabilia. Unfortunately, the contents were auctioned off and as far as I can tell, the museum is no longer open.
The Whipple Company store is a true diamond in the rough. We decided to stop and take the tour due to the history of my wife's family in coal mining. We are glad we did. We found the tour to be very informative and enlightening. We learned many interesting facts about the company stores and mining that history doesn't teach. The company store is in the process of being restored, but we can see the value in keeping this gem of history alive. Thank you Joy for the tour. We would highly recommend a visit.
