When post-Prohibition miners looked to let off a little steam, they turned to the Collier brothers. As lifelong miners, the brothers opened a tavern to cater to their buddies after a hard day in the pits. It was gritty. It was loud. It was full of good music and laughter and great food. They were third generation miners, but as it turns out mining wasn’t all they knew — food and fun was in their blood.

Two Brothers Mining Company is a great place to take a break and enjoy amazing food & drinks with friends, family, or complete strangers. Our full menu includes staples of the Collier brothers’ era, as well as many of today’s favorites.

St. Aloysius Church Historic Site

953 W, KS 47
Girard, KS 66743

Church built in 1881 was replaced by a larger building for use in 1907, but original building was kept. Larger building was struck by lightning, destroyed in 1982, and remains stand. Both buildings built in a Vernacular Gothic Revival. Cemetery is also on the property.

THE LEGEND OF GREENBUSH

According to legend, in 1869, Father Phillip Colleton, was caught at this site by a furious hail and thunder- storm. The frightened priest took refuge under his saddle and vowed that if his life was spared, he would build a church on this spot. The fervent promise resulted in the establishment of St. Aloysius, Greenbush. The first Catholic Church erected in Crawford County was a wooden frame structure completed in 1871. Located on the Historic “Mission Road”. The church was destroyed by a storm in 1877. Parishioners quarried limestone from Hickory Creek and completed the second church in 1881. The first resident pastor, Father F. M. Verdan, arrived in 1882 and served the church for fifty years. A larger church was needed and completed in 1907. The 1881 church was converted into a community building. The third church stood for 75 years as a landmark before it was struck by lightning and burned in 1982. The ruins remain. The 1881 church was renovated into a place of worship. Thus the second church became the fourth church on March 9, 1986 and served the people until it closed in 1993. Father Colleton’s promise will continue.

Haldeman-Julius also created the Little Blue Books, small paperback books that made literature available to the masses at a cheap price – a venture that landed him on the FBI’s “enemies list”.

Solidarity: Amazon Army Mural

308 N Walnut St
Pittsburg, KS 66762
(620) 231-8110

Located inside the Pittsburg Public Library, this 10’x12′ mural features St. Barbara, the patron saint of coal miners, and a number of the wives, mothers and grandmothers of miners who organized marches on coal mines throughout Southeast Kansas, protesting working conditions.

Called the “Army of Amazons” by the New York Times, their efforts essentially shutdown some of the largest coal fields in the world at the time and even forced the Governor of Kansas to temporarily move his offices to Pittsburg’s historic Hotel Stilwell.

To learn more about the Amazon Army and the women that led them, be sure to visit other Crawford County attractions, including the Miners Hall Museum in Franklin, the Miners Memorial, located at 2nd and Pine in Pittsburg or the Crawford County Historical Museum, just west of Pittsburg on US-69.

This mural was commissioned by the Pittsburg Area Arts and Crafts Association and the Pittsburg Arts Council, and was painted by Wayne Wildcat.
