Our already popular, Clifford Mine Shaft, represents the northern-most shaft of

the entire Anthracite region.  Kids grab a shovel and pail, don a hard hat and venture

into the 20 foot shaft to find the coal buried in the earth!  Our shaft is a big hit with all ages.


The total cost is $12.80 for grass seed, thanks to many volunteers and donations!   Thanks to

MEM Concrete in Simpson for the donated pipe, to 93 year old Ray Swingle for free backhoe

and stone work, and thanks to laborers Ken Stackhouse, Mark Wilmot,  Josh Myers,

Doug Wilmot, Casandra Zundrful, and Isabelle Keating for their many volunteer hours.
