Forest Hazel speaks about mining at the Chatham Historical Museum

September 3, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Forest Hazel, Mining expert

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 AT 2PM. Join us at the Historic Chatham County Courthouse to hear Forest Hazel talk about mining in Chatham County. We’ve had so many people view the mining exhibit in the Museum that we asked Forest, who has researched and advocated for the recognition of Chatham’s unique mining history to give a program on it this week.
Forest will be available in the Museum on Sunday from noon until 2pm, and again after the presentation. He has lots of interesting information to share about the coal mines that once flourished in the southwestern part of Chatham County and the disasters that occurred there, and he welcomes your questions.
Don’t miss the mining exhibit in the Museum, which shows the progression of lights used in old mines — from candles to battery operated headlamps, along with other mining artifacts.
The program is from 2pm to 3pm and the Museum will be open from noon until 4pm. Both are free and everyone is welcome!
