Scranton: Below Ground and Above
Go down in history – 300 feet beneath the surface of the earth – to this once abandoned but now restored Lackawanna Coal Mine. Walk through the winding underground rock tunnels (a chilly 53 degrees year round) as our guide describes late 19th century mining methods and the heroic efforts of men and boys, whose toil fueled the conversion of our economy from agriculture to industry. Following a delicious buffet in the restored historic Lackawanna Railroad Station, we will visit the nearby Steamtown National Historic Site and step back in time to experience the story of steam railroading. We will view a short film and have guided tours of the roundhouses, yards and museum.
