Stone Heritage Museum

Appalachia and the Industrial Age
Nestled in the Pike County mountains, the Sidney-Stone area is full of rich history and natural beauty. There is no better place to learn of America’s Industrial age than Stone Kentucky, which features the Stone Heritage Museum and the Ford mansion. It is a little known fact that prominent American industrialist Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company, established a coal business in Stone, Kentucky. This proved to be his largest coal mining operation, with daily production values at around 6000 tons, and around 180,000,000 tons in reserve. Ford’s coal mining operation employed around 1500 men and proved to be an essential economic resource in the area.

Stone Heritage Museum
The Stone Heritage Museum is the result of the mission of the Stone community to preserve their coal mining heritage. The museum features a wide variety of artifacts from Appalachian history, such as old photographs, artwork, mining memorabilia, dentist office items, early publications, news clippings, scrapbooks, household items, baseball items, antiques, school mementos and much more.

The Stone Heritage Museum is open the first Saturday of every month, and by appointment. To plan your visit to the Stone Heritage Museum, call (606) 237-5100 or (606) 237-6099 today.
