Remember the miners

Talk about a fitting tribute... Miner's Memorial is located at 2nd and Walnut in Pittsburg and is a classy recognition of a profession that was just plain old hard work.

Deep shaft and strip miners and auxiliary workers of the Weir-Pittsburg Coal Field are all remembered here.

One first-rate open building with plaques, nine polished granite slabs with names, six kiosks that use historic narrative, and a granite entry marker are all placed around a beautifully landscaped circular area.

Hats off to all the people that worked years on bringing this memorial to reality.
