|    About Us    |
The geographic focus is the "Fairmont Field" which includes the 6 counties of Barbour, Harrison, Marion, Monongalia, Preston and Taylor.
NACMHA has, over its short life, established a museum, hosted with local communities a state traveling coal mining exhibit for 2 1/2 years
and enlisted public sentiment to preserve this historical display. We have also loaned artifacts and library materials to speakers, researched and
developed a listing of coal mine fatalities and supported other local groups in efforts to build miners' memorials commemorating coal mine disasters.
We display a regional road map at our museum showing regional coal mining heritage attractions in the area.
