Explore the world of a Coal Mining Town and the life of the people who worked in the coal and railroad industry. The Dante Coal Mining and Railroad Museum invites visitors to enjoy exhibits of coal and railroad memorabilia, donated by the residents and former residents of Dante and the surrounding community. This building is now the home of the DANTE HISTORY PROJECT display, which traveled around Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky for two years in the late 1990's. School groups are particularly welcome to visit the Museum so that students can meet miners and railroad workers to learn about life and work in the company coal town.
