Carrying Coal to Columbus

Primary tabs

Join local history authors David Meyers and Elise Meyers Walker as they talk about their newest book, Carrying Coal to Columbus. As early as 1755, explorers found coal deposits in Ohio's Hocking Valley. The industry that followed created towns and canals, and established a new way of life. Come hear about the hard work and the struggles that unfolded in Ohio's capital and the Little Cities of Black Diamonds, including stories of the Jeffrey family and Jeffrey Manufacturing.
