additional sites in Coal Creek

Mark Morgan, Mark Mowery, and Lucinda Burnham from Norris Dam State Park augered the next six holes to make our job much easier to install the historic markers.  They worked cheap... hot Krispy Kremes and purple bandanas and they were happy!  We are DEFINITELY happy and thankful for the augered holes!!

All markers will be located along Highway 116 (Fraterville Miners' Memorial Highway)
