isn’t open on Mondays! Except the Bakery/Cafe. Drove out to this little town in hopes of learning about coal mining in WA at the turn of the century. We did meet “Gomer” who is a volunteer at the museum. His father was a Welsh miner who came to WA to work in the mines. His father was only 18 in 1912 when he started working in the mine. His experience from Wales got him promoted to a fire boss (not sure what that is) at a young age. Gomer’s father met his mother who was also from Wales here and they made their life here. Gomer restored the locomotive that is on display. He said it was made in Plymouth Wisconsin. He really took pride in his work and said he wanted the kids who come to the display to have fun with it. Lunch at the cafe was ok.
On our drive home we saw the sign for the Indian Gaming Casino run by the Muckleshoot Tribe. Mostly bingo and some slots and very smokey. David won $1.41 and I lost $10.00 😦
