Construction Update on UBB Memorial

Posted: Updated:

Construction on the memorial in Whitesville to honor the miners killed at UBB, is moving ahead.

WVNS 59 News wanted to share a couple of photos from the UBB Memorial Facebook page.

In a photo album updated earlier this month, they showed pictures of the construction site.

Photographs show the cement being poured as one of the first steps.

One side of the memorial will display the 29 miners' silhouettes.

And the other side will be a timeline of events that unfolded on April 5th 2010.
