Commemorative Marked Place Honoring First Coal Mine In Illinois



The Illinois Historical Society is placing a commemorative marker for 'Illinois' First Coal Mine.'

The marker will be place at the southeast corner of the Jackson County Courthouse in Murphysboro Saturday at 11 a.m.

The original marker was dedicated in 1937 on the corner of Williams Street and Old Illinois 13, but some say it disappeared in the 1960's or 70's.
