What is now a Coal Miners Museum, was once known as the entire town under one roof. This building was home the post office, doctors office (Dr.Turner, as well as many others), bank, Consolidation Coal Company Offices, barber shop, masonic lodge, jail, snack shop, and others throughout its time. It is now owned and run by the Van Lear Historical Society and their volunteers. Sitings in the building are numerous, no one hardley enters the building and exits without having an experience, whether it be day or night. There have been deaths in the building, and it is believed that these spirts can often be contacted. Many paranormal groups have investigated, and all have collected numerous amounts of evidence. Many apparitions have been seen, of men, women, and children. The building is 4 stories, and none of them lack any haunting. Voices can be heard throughout the building, footsteps, apparitions, shadows, cold spots, orbs, misplacement of items, eerie feelings, and so much more.
