|At the intersection of Routes
209 and 901, about a mile east of Minersville, PA, stands

once the historic Sunbury Trail.
This tribute is not only to the miner who toiled deep within the bowels of the earth to provide fuel for the Industrial Revolution, but also to those whose pride in the Anthracite Region is shown by projects such as this.
