The program, "Old Barclay: A History of Coal Mining on Barclay Mountain," will be presented on Tuesday, April 6, 7 p.m. at the Bradford County Library. The program is free but seating is very limited so reservations are required by calling 570-297-2436.
"Old Barclay: A History of Coal Mining on Barclay Mountain" reviews the story of Barclay Mountain's coal mining settlements, including Barclay, Fall Creek, Dublin, Graydon, Foot of Plane, Carbon Run, and Long Valley. The old methods of coal mining are described and the development of the incline plane, railroad, and canal system are also briefly discussed.
This program is a synopsis of a more detailed outreach program that we will be offering in the future.
