This Ride Through An Old Coal Mine In Tennessee Will Take You Back In Time
There are about 650 people in Tennessee that still make a living as coal miners, which means the mines of old and folklore aren’t gone just yet. We did a little digging (no pun intended) to figure just what coal mining means to Tennessee – and Tennesseans.
Take a look at a day in the life of a Tennessee coal miner below. This trip takes you right to the center of Careyville Mountain.
What a curious thing…what a hard job done by Tennesseans we’ll forever respect.
