About this Exploration:

The newest tourist attraction in Crawford County, the Miner’s Memorial and Immigrant Park were dedicated in July, 2008 and are a tribute to the immigrants who settled in Southeast Kansas and worked in the Weir-Pittsburg Coalfields of Cherokee and Crawford Counties. The Miner’s Memorial features a large bronze statue of an era miner, large black granite monuments with the names inscribed of the miners who worked in the Weir-Pittsburg Coalfields and stone walking path leading past several information kiosks that tell the story and history of the mining industry in Southeast Kansas. Across Pine Street is Immigrant Park and the Pritchett Pavilion, located where the original Pittsburg train depot and Europe Hotel were situated. A mural in Immigrant Park depicts the scene in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Tour buses welcome, ADA accessible and public restrooms are located next to the Pritchett Pavilion inside Immigrant Park.
