Congrats! You Discovered Peerless Mine!
The 174 foot deep Peerless Mine was sunk at Ravenscroft that was one of four coal-mining communities on Bon Air Mountain. The need for miners created by the new mine brought new families to the community of Ravenscroft. All four of the coal mining towns on Bon Air Mountain were much the same with Front Street as the main street of the town. There were schools and ball fields, company stores, depots, hotels, check offices, barbershops, post offices, doctor’s offices, churches, cemeteries, jails, and weigh stations. There were also mule barns and blacksmith shops. Be sure to check out our other exciting geotrail locations in the county.
