East Coulee School Museum

Today, East Coulee is a bit of a ghost town, but back in the 1940’s its population numbered around 3800. The children of the Atlas and Empire coal miners attended this school, so when the mines closed, the school soon followed. The school reopened as a museum in 1985, and offers visitors a peek into the lives of the people who previously lived in the little mining town.
