Explore History: Black Diamond ByWay Bus Tour
All aboard as The Hub on Smith and Sheridan Community Land Trust host the next Explore History program – Black Diamond ByWay Bus Tour.
This driving tour will take you through the physical remnants of the once vibrant mining communities of Dietz, Acme, Carneyville (later called Kleenburn), Monarch and Kooi where you’ll learn about and observe evidence of the past coal mining booms of Sheridan County. Tour the Black Diamond Byway and learn about Sheridan County’s mining heritage. The TravelStoryGPS app audio tour tells the story of those who lived and worked in the historic coal mining towns just north of Sheridan during the early 20th century. Download the TravelStory App on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone to prepare for this tour or contact a Hub Fun & Wellness Coordinator to borrow tech. Please know, Goose Creek Transportation will also have the tour broadcasted through overhead bus speakers. At each stop we will take in the views of a few of the remnants at the coal sites. If the driving tour is canceled due to weather, the Black Diamond Trail virtual tour will be shown in the Hub Café.
Maximum 11 participants on the bus. $8 Suggested Contribution payable at tour time. Meet in the Hub Lobby. There is no charge if meeting in the Café for the virtual tour due to weather.
