Erie’s Coal Mining History

Erie was founded by a traveling preacher, Reverend Richard Van Valkenburg.

He spent many years in another Erie – that the man in Pennsylvania – earlier traveling west in 1866 for his wellbeing, only to operate in the plantations near Central City.

The Erie were a part of the larger Iroquois country. The word “Erie” signifies “extended tail,”“cat,” or “raccoon,” due to the mountain lions that roamed the area where the tribe lived on the eastern side of the country by Buffalo, New York to Eastern Ohio.

Before being called Erie, the Colorado town was called Coal Park.
