Default Harrison Coal & Reclamation Historical Park-Mining & Energy Museum Fund/Show Grounds

Harrison Coal & Reclamation Historical Park-Mining & Energy Museum Fund


The Mining & Energy Museum Fund has been created for the following purposes:

The ability to acquire land.

Constructing a museum building and an open air area featuring mining, construction, agriculture, transportation, and oil & gas history.

Constructing a maintenance & restoration building.

Future maintenance, restoration, and expansion needs of the grounds and equipment.

Our plans are to partner with area high schools, vocational schools, colleges & universities for their mechanic, agriculture, energy operations, natural resource, machining, welding, heavy equipment, and marketing programs. We would also host events featuring mining, construction, agriculture, transportation, and oil & gas history.

The Harrison Coal & Reclamation Historical Park is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization. Donations to the fund are tax deductible. They currently own over 20 pieces of equipment relating to the above mentioned industries, including a Marion 7200 Walking dragline.

Your donation will ensure the future learning and appreciation of the past contributions to our area and our world. Donations can be made by sending in the form on back. Online donations available.

The organization has been leasing an old mine site location for storage and there some land available to acquire to move forward with there plans. One option is a old mine site. Acquiring land has been a long time goal. The current land owner is canceling leases.

People ask why so much land. The machinery, buildings, and events will use up most or all of the land. They are taking in consideration of other organizations mistakes. One place only got 18 acres and had to discontinue events because the events out grew the land. There was no additional land around them to acquire because the land around them was a state wildlife area.

Yes Glenn. That's the storage location. The land owner is canceling leases. That effects the storage location and to my understanding the Stumptown location also. That is another reason why they need to be able to acquire the land options they are looking at.

Andrew they are not disclosing the locations they are looking at. The reason is a few years ago they was land available not far from the storage area to acquire. It was talked about in the public. Well someone found out and snatched it up. I'm only going say it is in eastern Ohio.

Glenn no more shows at the Stumptown location because of the lease canceling from what I have been told. That is the reason Stumptown Start up and Tune up show was moved to the fairgrounds.


Land ownership plans is to hold events like the digging show at the storage grounds the same time as Stumptown and a show like Stumptown as one show.

There is like a couple dozen or shows in the United States that is a digging show and your average steam show as one show.

Marion, I was not looking for a specific location, I was wondering if it was a mine site. open pit, tunnel? Hope they get started. Rough and Tumble, in Kinzers PA, is a show that has digging, well drilling and steam, as well as gas engines. Good show to attend! their steam show is one to watch. tractor games indeed!
