Today we had an enjoyable day out. Our friends are visiting from New Hampshire and we went and toured the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and the little town they have set up to show you what a coal town used to be like. They had and old school house where the kids could sit in the old desks, try on the dunce caps and read the old school books. There was the house the mine owner lived in, a bachelor's shack, and a 3 room house where a miner and his family would live. Pretty interesting and educational too. Here's a picture of all our kids inside the museum.
