Memorial to Seven Miners in Front of Current 
Union Hall, Local 3548, District 2, of the UMWA

Miners in McIntyre and in other nearby towns belonged to District 2, Local 3548 of the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA). This is a current photo of the office which is located several miles outside of McIntyre. The granite monument, dedicated to the seven miners who died in the mine explosion of June 30, 1941 stands in front of the building. The memorial was once located in front of the old Union Hall in McIntyre and was originally dedicated several years after the accident.
