County Reporters Paul Wierson and Susan Franzen visited Madrid Historical Museum for a tour of the Ackerlund-Burke Coal Mine, a replica of a coal mine dug out from the crawl space under the large museum building. We talked with local citizens about their knowledge and memories of the coal town and the coal camps surrounding it, as well as the local economy during the coal mining era.
