Mc Roberts Remembers The Miners

Written by Joanna Adams Sergent

Nestled in a small area, Mc Roberts, Kentucky has a Memorial wall that is often overlooked.   There is a high wall that was made for the coal mine train tracks to keep the mountain from sliding off.  The concrete retaining wall has been transformed into something that is of remembrance.

Mc Roberts, Kentucky has dedicated the wall to the Miners of Consolidated Coal Mine Number 214 in what is called 15 Hollow.  The Wall was dedicated by the Mountain Outreach Inc. whose founders are:  Vernon Hall and Jimmy Hall who are the sons of Ora Hall.   The wall is located on KY Route 343 in front of the building that is the Mc Roberts Adult Day Health Care.
