A memorial of crosses and a wreath is situated near the site in Montcoal where 29 miners lost their lives at the Upper Big Branch Mine April 5, 2010. In addition to this display, which has been in place since just after the disaster, a massive 48-foot-long black granite memorial is located in Whitesville and a new memorial marker is being dedicated today on the lawn of the Raleigh County Courthouse.
