The "Liberty
Help preserve
our heritage.


Mission Statement 

Our mission is to preserve and transform the former Liberty Theatre Building (erected 1920-21) into a regional museum showcasing the once-thriving coal mining industry of Nanty Glo, Blacklick and Jackson Townships, and Vintondale. The museum will educate visitors about the area's varied ethnic cultures, and the economic hardships shared by mining families during most of the period when "coal was king" in the region.

Historical photographs, artifacts, and private collections will be used to re-create that era. Other media including video, newspapers, books, websites and oral histories will be offered to educate visitors about our cherished family life, faith, and heroes.

Our goal, through all of this, is to help both local residents and out-of-area museum visitors find a connection between their lives and the lives of struggling mining families during the 1920-1940's, one not fully understood or appreciated by today's general public.
