In recent years, Eckley has been receiving some much needed restoration work on the houses and other structures of the former coal town. The best time to visit in our opinion is during one of the special events, such as Living History Weekend, held in August, which features a Civil War encampment, demonstrations, craft and food vendors, and more.
