While in Wilkes Barre you should discover much more than you can see on the surface. It’s time to explore under the surface, way under the surface. Travel 300 feet down under the soil and explore a coal mine from the 1860. As you descend the 3-4 min journey down the mine shaft you will watch the trees, the grass, and the sun disappear. You and a miner will travel down the down he will tell you the methods and history of the mine shaft. Through the years many stories have transpired through these chutes and there are plenty of things to tell. Learn the miner lingo and figure out what he means when he says you are winding underground gangways and rock tunnel past three different veins of hard coal, past the mule boy and the nipper, past the monkey vein and the dead chute. You will probably want to bring a jacket because the mine stay a cool 53 degrees year round. The mine tour will take about one hour and starches over ½ mile. Very informative and wonderfully extensive this tour will bring excitement and intrigue into your vacation.
