Within just a few miles of each other the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum and Portal 31 make up a complete educational and fun experience in learning about coal mining. Portal 31 was once one of the largest mines in the world before it was close in 1963. In 2009 it was turned in to an exhibition mine with animatronic figures and videos that explain the history of the mine and of coal mining in general. The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum has pieces from that help to illustrate this history of both the coal mine and what a mining town was like. The museum also has a Loretta Lynn exhibit and an underground mining experience.

A photo compilation of the historic Bessie & Flat Top Coal Mines which were located in West Jefferson County, Alabama. Both coal mines were originally owned by the Sloss Sheffield Steel & Iron Company. Both mines were originally open around 1905 with the completion of the L&N Railroad Cane Creek Branch operated by Birmingham Mineral Railroad. Southern Railways also completed an extension via another route through what was called 'Bessie Junction' just to the west of the Bessie Coal Mine. The Mary Lee Industrial Railroad also serviced the Flat Top & Bessie Mines. Both coal mines were very deep and massive underground mining operations that went over 2000 feet in depth and stretched for miles underground. Both mines were eventually operated by U. S. Pipe & Foundry when they purchased Sloss Sheffield in the 1940's. Around 1955 both mines were eventually closed. Entire communities were built around these mines with their own schools, company commissaries , churches and doctors offices. Years later the mine sites were sold to Jim Walters Corporation. Today nothing remains of the mine sites with the exception of some abandoned railroad trestles and the old Flat Top Tunnel. Both mine sites remains reside on private property and no trespassing policy is strictly enforced.

In 1917 the U.S. Coal & Coke Company, a subsidiary of U.S. Steel, built the community of Lynch, Kentucky, then the world's largest coal camp. The coal camp was built on part of the 19,000 acres the company had purchased in the southeastern tip of Harlan County, near the Virginia border. The lynchcamp's population peaked at about 10,000 persons but the reported figures vary because of the transient nature of the miners and their families at that time. One thousand company owned structures provided housing for people of 38 nationalities, the most prominent of which were Italian, Spanish, Czech, Polish, English, Welsh, Irish and Scottish. By the 1940s this mining complex employed more than 4000 persons above and below ground. The public buildings were constructed of cut sandstone, and included a company commissary, post office, theater, hotel, hospital, churches, and schools. Many company buildings were built of stone as well, such as the offices, bath house, power plant and lampportal31-1a.jpg (143733 bytes) house. In the 1920s U.S. Coal & Coke owned the world's largest coal tipple with a capacity of 15,000 tons. On February 12, 1923 the world's record for coal production in a single 9 hour shift was achieved when miners operating 40 shortwall cutting machines produced 12,820 tons of coal, filling 256 railcars. While considered one of Appalachia's model coal camps due to its' company provided health care, education, churches, housing, social services, wages and benefits and recreation, it was still a closed community where the company carefully controlled all aspects of the political and economic process. The company had their own police force and it was used to keep union organizers out of the coal camp and to intimidate miners who tried to join the Portal 31-1926 union. Throughout the 1920s and well into the 1930s the company along with many Kentucky coal producers did everything in their power to prevent unionization. This action by the coal companies and the actions of the miners earned Harlan County the name of "Bloody Harlan". All the coal produced at Lynch by U.S. Coal & Coke Co. was "captive coal", meaning it was all produced by U.S. Coal & Coke Co. for U.S. Steel consumption, and was produced from drift mines. All coal was shipped from Lynch to U.S. Steel plants via the L&N (Louisville & Nashville) Railroad. Coal was mined from the 56" Elkhorn C Seam, 56" Keokee Seam, 50" Kelioka Seam at the company's No. 30 and No.31 Mines at Lynch. U.S. Coal & Coke also mined coal at Gary, Thorpe, Elbert, and Filbert, West Virginia. Today many of the company's buildings, including a tipple, and a mine portal are part of a coal mining museum complex at Lynch. In the 1950s the company began selling homes to individuals and the town was incorporated, thus allowing for an elected mayor and town council, although still heavily influenced by the company. Incorporated as a fifth class city, it had a population of 1,517 in 1970, 1,614 in 1980 and 1,166 in 1990.

Shuman for allowing me to use his beautiful music, All his pieces are composed, performed and produced by him, he is truly gifted and is definitely one of the best pianist of today. You have heard some of his music played on the Weather Channel local on the 8's. So I truly want to thank Matthew C. Shuman for allowing me to make a little bit of magic : ) His youtube channel is: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_Yfh8UmbqgwfPQSif3lDjA and his facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/MatthewCShumanMusic You can purchase his music at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=ntt_srch_drd_B003XO036Q?ie=UTF8&field-keywords=Matthew%20C.%20Shuman&index=digital-music&search-type=ss And also at itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/matthew-c.-shuman/id384778459 You can also purchase his CD at his home page: http://www.matthewcshuman.com/ So again, Thank You to Matthew C. Shuman... Thank You : ) Hi Everybody, I'm so sorry it took me so long to make another video, it's been really hard this past few years. Most of the photos in this video is from 2012, sadly that year I didn't get to take that many photos and there is a few from 2013. Hopefully maybe this year will be better one, I hope... Also in the video you will see a baby opossum we nicknamed her Rosebud, Jeff found her when she was a baby and Ariel took care of her until she was old enough to make it on her own, she is doing good, Ariel and Mikey just seen her a month ago, she is still cute, haha. And you will also see a photo of Mr. Kitty, Sadly he passed away, He was Candy's cat, he was the best cat we've ever met, I wish ever cat was like him. We miss him... And again I truly want to apologize to the Benham and the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum, we was hoping to do a video about the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum, but I'm sad to say we lost most of the footage, our little Handy Cam hard drive crashed, we just wasn't able to retrieve the footage. But maybe this year we can get our little Handy Cam fixed and go back to Kentucky Coal Mining Museum and film again. We love the place and the voluntaries are so wonderful, I'm truly sorry to all the hard workers and the Museum, I'm so sorry. And I hope to get our little Handy Cam fixed soon because I really miss filming the sunsets with Jeff : ) I hope you might like the video and God Bless You all : ) Tammy The song is: " Ocean Journey " by Matthew C. Shuman ( I am in no way affiliated with this group nor am I taking credit for it in anyway shape or form & any parties affiliated with me are not taking it to be there own work or creation in anyway shape or form) Thank you, Tammy "Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship & research.
