West Virginians’ resilient spirit shines through here in a room that reminds us of how many challenges we faced in the 1950’s through the 1970’s. Tragedies like the Silver Bridge collapse, the Farmington mine disaster, the Marshall University football team plane crash, and the Willow Island scaffold collapse receive a special dedication here. Learn about Miners for Democracy, a revolt by rank-and-file miners within the United Mine Workers of America, and about antipoverty programs of the 1960’s.
