Scale Model of Coal Creek Watershed Historical Sites

Lake City Mayor Buck Wilson had a scale model of the Coal Creek watershed built showing the locations of historical sites.  Coal built the towns of Coal Creek (now Lake City), Briceville, Fraterville, and Beech Grove and coal can again revitalize the area, this time through mining history tourism.  Click on the photos below and see if you can locate the miniature cannon on Militia Hill.  Historic sites ready for touring are part of our "Oh, God for one more breath" self-guided tour of cemeteries.  Included are two sites that are on the National Register of Historic Places, Fraterville Miners' Circle in Leach Cemetery and Briceville Community Church and Cemetery
