Killer tree stumps, sulfur balls and other wonders of the Exhibition Coal Mine

Want to stay cool during this scorching July in D.C.? Then visit the Exhibition Coal Mine in Beckley, W.Va., where authentic grizzled miners lead you through a hazardous underground labyrinth that stays 58 degrees year 'round.

A gift from the Blair Witch?

This “Peace Totem” sculpture, complete with a propeller at the top from a crashed plane, guards the gates of the Exhibition Coal Mine in Beckley, W.Va. Who knew peace was such a scary thing?
