Travel back in time to Buxton, Iowa -- the amazing coal mining town established in 1900 by the Consolidation Coal Company, where blacks and whites were treated equal -- with Author Rachelle Chase. Rachelle, dressed in period clothing, will share audio from former Buxton residents, rare images, and newspaper clippings to give attendees a glimpse of daily life in Buxton. Come learn what people had in their homes, what they did for fun, what life and mining were like, what prominent residents like Ben Buxton, Lottie Armstrong, and attorney George Woodson were really like, and more!
