The Harrison Coal and Reclamation Historical Park Inc. is a 501-C3 non profit organization formed in 1992 with the idea of acquiring and preserving for future generations, our surface mining and reclamation history in Harrison County and the Ohio Valley.

Many mining companies worked in Harrison County and the Ohio Valley, both deep mines and surface operations including Hanna/Consolidation Coal, R&F Coal Co, Boich Mining, Bedway Coal, Nelms 1 and 2.

The event will highlight these companies and the men and women who spent their lives here, the machines that were invented to make the coal digging easier and the land management and new reclamation techniques developed here.

HCRHP will try to preserve and present to the public an exhibition center featuring this history.
