Midlothian's coal mines were the first in North America, and almost nobody knows it! We'd love to share the facts and fascinating personal stories with your club or civic group. Contact Bryan Truzzie, Historic Sites Supervisor, below to arrange for a speaker to visit with you.


Do you want to learn more? We can train you to share the story as a guide or speaker. Let Bryan Truzzie know if you are interested. See his contact information below.
