Welcome to the opening of Mining Memories blog.  This blog was the brain child of board members of the Miners Hall Museum at Franklin, Kansas.  We wanted to highlight the rich mining history of Southeast Kansas.

We will be sharing interesting bits of that mining history.  We welcome your comments and any additional mining related information you may wish to share.

The grand opening of Franklin’s Miners Hall Museum will be May 1, 2012. Check out the museum at  www.minershallmuseum.com.  Follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Also, keep in mind the Smithsonian Exhibit, “The Way We Worked,” will be held at the Miners Hall Museum, May 11 to June 23, 2013.
