Coal mining is a part of the history of this area of the state, and Knoxville native, Doug Wilson, takes time in local communities to bring that history back to life. Saturday from 10 to noon, at the Bussey Community Library, Wilson will present the history of the coal mining towns Muchakinock, Buxton, Console, Buchnell, and Haycock. Wilson tells KNIA KRLS News that he has hundreds of photos and artifacts, and hosts a question and answer session after the presentation.
