Overview

On display at the Coal Creek Miners Museum is the rich history of the miners that lived, worked and died in Coal Creek, Fraterville and Briceville, Tennessee. You will learn how the "free" miners fought against the convict lease system and about a community that not only survived one mining disaster but two that killed almost every man in the community and young boys too.
