Coal from the Lackawanna Valley fueled America's Industrial Revolution. Millions of tons of domestic anthracite came from mines like those that ran under this park.

Today, nature's gift of anthracite and the dynamic story of the Industrial Revolution are showcased in historical, educational and recreational sites throughout the area. Government, business, community organizations and individuals have joined to create the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority and form partnerships designed to share this story with both residents and visitors.
