Atlas Coal Mine Historic Site Donations
The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site is operated by the Atlas Coal Mine Historical Society, established in 1989. Currently, the Atlas Coal Mine Historical Society is raising funds for Tunnel Vision, a project aiming to expand and preserve mining history for future generations.
The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site is operated by the Atlas Coal Mine Historical Society, established in 1989. Our job is to preserve and present this nationally and provincially designated, visitor-supported, industrial heritage site. We see ourselves as storytellers of the mining years, inspiring a sense of connection for our visitors. We make south central Alberta a better place to live and visit.
Tunnel Vision is our plan to complete building restoration, enhance the mine train ride, provide an underground mine experience and visitor centre, and move into a position of sustainability. Ultimately, Tunnel Vision empowers to us to fulfill our mandate: To preserve and present these nationally designated historic resources that we hold in trust for the people of Canada.
Tunnel Vision is the strategic development plan of the Atlas Coal Mine Historical Society. This plan will increase the capacity of the Society to steward the nationally designated historic resources we hold in trust for the people of Canada. Pillars of the plan include providing an underground experience, completing historic restoration, expanding the mine train, building an underground interpretive centre, and evolving into a sustainable organization. Tunnel Vision will yield dividends for all Canadians. Getting there requires the assistance of government, corporations, community groups, and individuals. Be a part of the legacy, and keep alive the memory of those who mined the black!
