SCLT Explore History Features Black Diamond Trail

The Sheridan Community Land Trust has announced that its Explore History program for January will be “A Virtual Drive Down the Black Diamond Trail.”

For this Explore History, SCLT is hitting the virtual road for a drive that will take you through the physical remnants of the once vibrant mining communities of Dietz, Acme, Carneyville (later called Kleenburn), Monarch, and Kooi, and more evidence of the past coal mining booms of Sheridan County.

To preserve the stories of Sheridan County’s past today so they aren’t forgotten tomorrow, SCLT encourages attendees to share their memories and stories of these communities. We want to hear and document them.

Explore History programs will be held on Tuesday, January 9, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., at The Hub on Smith in Sheridan and again on Tuesday, January 16, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon, at TRVCC in Dayton.

Explore History is free to attend and open to all. For more information, visit
