I am questioning why the Windber Area , David J. Shaffer, Museum is not included in the names of historical places and things to do, it is the original Windber Museum prior to the Coal Heritage Center being established. The activity for Miners Day names local restaurants on 15th. St. around the Coal Hermitage Center. The story in the paper states they are trying to promote the heritage of the town yet the oldest building in the borough where Windber was actually established is not included. There are many items of historical items housed at the museum about the families who settled here including the old Windber Era newspapers and World War II records of he boys who fought from Windber for our freedom. There are pictures that are now being shown in the Coal Heritage Center. The original site of the town is being over looked and not promoted as a major part of our history.
