Rosebud Saves Coal Heritage Center!


March 8, 2010 – Rosebud Mining Company today bought the Windber Coal Heritage Center.  This will result in an innovative partnership that will use the 31-year-old firm's resources, insights and connections to keep alive the history of the region's miners and the story of the Quecreek rescue.

"We are happy to help keep the Center open for the community, and celebrate the hard-working coal miners that provide America with half of its electricity each and every day," said Rosebud Mining Company's President Cliff Forrest. Per Forrest, within a few months the Windber Coal Heritage Center will be reopened with regular business hours moving forward.
