to our Memorial Page, the page that makes me feel the most emotion.
The whole Miners Memorial Park was financed solely
by donations from many people who contributed items to the park
in memory of their special family coal miner.
our Miners Memorial Park, we have the only statue in our community.
This statue is very special because it was dedicated by Local
1307 of United Mine Workers of America to honor all coal miners,
past, present, and future.
next item that was donated was the flagpole complete with the
American flag and the Town of Diamondville flag. The United Mine
Workers of America – District 22 donated this again in honor
of all coal miners.
the park itself, we have a wonderful Mine Map Exhibit which houses
pictures of mines and also a detailed map locating all the old
mines in the area. It is facing east toward Oyster Ridge, and
when you are looking at the map, you can look to the ridge and
see the location of some of the old mines. We are grateful to
The Lincoln County Historical Society for this wonderful donation.
whole park is filled with donated items in memory of deceased
loved ones who worked in the mine. We have benches, trees, two
picnic shelters, and a restroom facility as well as a beautiful
flowerbed in the shape of a diamond.
park makes a wonderful stopping place for a tourist in need of
a rest and a picnic area. The locals find it a nice park to simply
meet to visit or to hold small outdoor meetings
