Special Exhibit: Richard Mine

January 10 January 16

The Richard Mine Exhibit is a Friends of Deckers Creek project that aims to reconnect our community with the history surrounding the Richard Mine, and the environmental legacies that came as a result. Friends of Deckers Creek is committed to helping treat the acid mine drainage that flows from Richard Mine, as it is the largest single source of contamination in the Deckers Creek watershed. This exhibit pays tribute to our region’s proud mining and industrial heritage in the Deckers Creek Corridor, while also envisioning a modern and healthy watershed that encourages recreation, environmental stewardship, and a thriving community. The original exhibit was funded with the help of the West Virginia Humanities Council and the Environmental Protection Agency.
