Miners Memorial Dedicated in Layland
Miners who died 99 years ago are being remembered with a new memorial, and that was dedicated on Saturday. The community Layland Miners Memorial remembers the 115 miners who died in one of West Virginia's worst mining disasters on March 2 1915. You can still see pieces of the mine in the place where Layland Baptist Church now stands. Investigators never could pinpoint an exact cause for the explosion.
