Mining: Alabama Mining Museum

Table of Contents

The Alabama Mining Museum located in Dora, Alabama depicts the development of coal mining from 1890 to 1940.  During this period, mining became an important industrial force and the chief source of energy.  During this era, coal mining moved from the pick and shovel to machines.  In 1984, the Alabama State Senate designated the Alabama Mining Museum as “The Official State Coal Mining Museum of Alabama.”  For more information and to visit this Historic Museum contact Bonnie Groves 205-648-2442.
