Our Little Coal Car

Mount Carmel was founded on the mining of anthracite coal, and we celebrate that tradition and heritage. Of our many odes to our culture, this one is for the children: a miniature coal car. Each spring and summer, newly restored, our little car comes out and is place is the garden. It is then filled with real coal as well as assorted flowers. We hope that all the little one take interest in our cute little display and will be encourages to visit the library more to learn about its significance to our area history.
