No. 9 Mine And Museum
The No. 9 Coal Mine & Museum is located in Lansford, PA, below the Pocono Mountains. Lansford is located in the western part of Carbon County. The Mine & Museum are located near the banks of Panther Creek on 9 Dock Street, near the junction of Dock and West Ridge Streets. Lansford is part of Lehigh Valley, which is an area in Pennsylvania named after the Lehigh River. This area is sometimes known as the "coal region,'' particularly Carbon County.
The Mine was opened by a non-profit organization by the name of Panther Creek Valley Foundation. Their mission is to preserve the landmark as a heritage site.
The Museum has items such as the tools, food cans, blasting equipment, and more that belonged to the miners of No. 9.
Visitors to the mine ride 1,600 feet along rail into the mountain.
