Coal Miners Memorial

Honoring Coal Miners

Memorial bricks are still available in Coal Miners Memorial Park in West Frankfort, IL.  

Any coal miner past, present, retired, or deceased may have a brick in the park regardless of where he or she lived and worked. We have miners from several states in the park now. This is a great way for family to honor the coal miner in their life and a lasting memory for future generations.  

Bricks are $100.00 including engraving and installation.  

Forms are available at W. Frankfort City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce or at  For questions you may contact me on facebook  at or call me at 618-923-0797.
