An interactive museum found in Windber, which was "created overnight by the Berwind-White Coal Mining Company," the Windber Coal Heritage Center is dedicated to the history of this authentic company town and telling the story of the everyday lives of miners and their families. Authentic vintage mining costumes, tools, a fiberoptic map illustrating 21 square miles of mines, the Windber city grid, the settlements of ethnic populations and the more 31 local churches and other organizations, and more can be seen. The Quecreek Mine Rescue exhibit tells the dramatic story of the nine miners who were trapped 248 feet underground in July 2002, and rescued three days later. The Center operates on a limited schedule.
