Coal Creek Miners Museum


On display at the Coal Creek Miners Museum is the rich history of the miners that lived, worked and died in Coal Creek, Fraterville and Briceville, Tennessee. You will learn how the “free” miners fought against the convict lease system which ultimately ended the system in the southern states. You will also hear about a community that not only survived one mining disaster but two that killed almost every man in the community and young boys too. The story of this tenacious community reveals the courageous spirit of our forefathers.


Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.



Admission to the museum is free, but donations are accepted.
