Pennsylvania Anthracite Coal Miners Memorial

A superb and moving tribute to the miners who toiled in the anthracite fields.

The Pennsylvania Anthracite Miners Memorial, in Shenandoah’s Girard Park, is at the corner of Main and Washington Streets. The large three-paneled bronze bas relief sculpture by Zenos Frudakis is dedicated to the thousands of anthracite coal miners who lived and worked in Pennsylvania. The impressive monument is surrounded by bricks featuring the names of many of the miners, and benches where visitors can rest and reflect on the hardworking residents of the Upper Schuylkill Region who helped to build America.
