ASHLEY - Anthracite coal miners sacrificed their health and sometimes with their lives just by going to work.

Today, the Huber Breaker Anthracite Coal Miners Memorial was unveiled before a crowd of 250 people honoring miners throughout the Northern Coal Field of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Ray Clarke, 79, and the Huber Breaker Preservation Society are behind the coal miners memorial stone that was placed in front of the Huber Breaker, which closed in 1976 after four decades of removing rock and waste from coal.

The preservation society is hoping to expand the historical site and memorial park to include the Huber Breaker, which is in disrepair.
