2016 has been a year of growth for the Mine Wars Museum. Not only has the museum entertained thousands of visitors from all across America, we have been fortunate enough to host a variety of events, debut a new exhibit, and begin the publication of our museum journal. Scholars have travelled to Matewan to share their historical insights. Descendants of participants in the Mine Wars have also stopped by and shared their stories with us. In short, a part of our history which has been neglected for so long now has a venue where the story can be told, expanded, and transmitted to future generations.
