Slopeside chalets at Javorinka

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Iowa produced many tons of coal to heat its homes. Immigrants from Wales and Cornwall came to work those mines. Two of them were in Angus and Moran, towns near Perry, that died when the mines were closed. This remembers the mines and the men (and their families) who worked them.

In the room you'll notice that it was designed very simple to resemble a coal miners home. This room contains actual photographs of both mines past and present. You'll also notice a canary birdcage lamp in the room that represents how a canary was used to detect toxic gases in the mines. Fabrics used throughout the room are working class style with a Betty Lenz quilt as a tribue to both the mines and miners.
