Memorial bricks are still available in Coal Miners Memorial Park in West Frankfort, IL.
Any coal miner past, present, retired, or deceased may have a brick in the park regardless of where he or she lived and worked. We have miners from several states in the park now. This is a great way for family to honor the coal miner in their life and a lasting memory for future generations.
Bricks are $100.00 including engraving and installation.
Forms are available at W. Frankfort City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce or at www.oldkingcoalfestival.org. For questions you may contact me on facebook at www.facebook.com/coalminersmemorial.park or call me at 618-923-0797.
