Eckley Miners’ Village
2 Eckley Back Road, Weatherly, PA 18255
Nestled among the coal fields of Luzerne County in northeastern Pennsylvania, Eckley is an example of a planned 19th-century industrial coal mining town showing visitors what life was like during the time when “coal was king.”
Today, Eckley is a museum representing the lives of the immigrant anthracite coal miners and their families. Come for a visit and experience life in northeastern Pennsylvania coal patch towns during the time when coal was an essential industrial fuel. Visit the Visitors’ Center exhibitions, take a guided tour, plan a trip around a living history event, and learn more about housing and daily lives within the village.
