Historical Society Presents Program on Coal Mining and Mine Water



January 2, 2023 - Have you ever wondered what is going on right beneath your feet? Most area residents are aware that this region was widely mined for years and that remnants of the area’s coal mining past can be found everywhere, but most know little about the underground world beneath them.


At 1:00 PM on January 28, at the Community Rooms of the Jefferson Hills Municipal Building in Pennsylvania, the West Jefferson Hills Historical Society is offering the program “Coal Mining and Mine Water in Western Pennsylvania” presented by mine engineer Terry Ackman. In it, Mr. Ackman will share rare photographs and extensive knowledge on the impact of mining the ground beneath us. Both historical society and community members are invited to attend this very enlightening free program on a fascinating topic that impacts us all.  For questions or additional info, please call 412-650-0925 or send an e-mail to
